Cancer of the Larynx

The larynx, also known as the voice box, is located in the front of the neck and helps us breathe, swallow and speak, as it controls the opening and closing of the windpipe. Like nearly any other cells in the body, abnormalities within the larynx can lead to the development of a cancerous tumor, which most often develops within the squamous cells that line the inner walls of the larynx.
