Throat cancer refers to tumorous tumors that develop in your throat (pharynx), voice box (larynx) or tonsils. Greatest throat cancers are squamous cell carcinomas. This means they grow in the squamous cells that line the throat. The main risk issues for throat cancer are smoking or by smokeless tobacco and use of alcohol. Symptoms of throat cancer are trouble living or speaking, frequent headaches, pain or clear in the ears, trouble believing and ear pain. You can reduce your danger of throat cancer by not smoking, not chewing tobacco and limiting liquor use. The treatment will be depending on the type of cancer and how far it has spread. Slightly invasive endoscopic surgery is a new technique that removes the entire tumor through the mouth, without cuts and little or no change in speech and believing.
