Deciding on Treatment

  • Laryngeal Cancer: Treatment Choices

    There are various treatment choices for laryngeal cancer. Which one may work best for you? It depends on a number of factors. These include the size, location, and stage of your cancer.

  • Laryngeal Cancer: Chemotherapy

    Chemotherapy uses anticancer medicines to kill cancer cells. Learn about some of the chemotherapy medicines used to treat laryngeal cancer, how they are given, and possible side effects.

  • Laryngeal Cancer: Radiation Therapy

    Radiation therapy kills cancer cells by focusing powerful X-rays at the tumor.

  • Combination Therapy for Laryngeal Cancer

    When you have advanced laryngeal cancer, your treatment options include some combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment.

  • Laryngeal Cancer: Targeted Therapy

    Targeted therapy medicines target specific proteins or cell functions that help cancer grow. Like chemotherapy, these medicines work throughout the body. But they sometimes work when chemotherapy does not. They can also have less severe side effects.

  • Laryngeal Cancer: Surgery

    Laryngeal cancer may be treated with surgery to remove the cancer. All or part of the larynx, or voice box, may be removed.
