CANCER OF LARYNX

Risk factors of laryngeal cancer

The larynx is a key body part as it allows the swallowing and the passage of air, ensuring adequate protection of the airway in the first case and also allowing speech, being the seat of the vocal cords.

The larynx is usually associated with some serious diseases, including the presence of carcinomas: especially susceptible to the appearance of larynx tumours such as in smokers, because the carcinogens contained in cigarettes violently attack this crossroads organ.
