Carcinoma of the Larynx

  • Bruce E. Hudkins

Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma is associated with cigarette and alcohol use, inhalation of petroleum distillate fumes, and possibly human papilloma viruses #16 and #18. The peak incidence is during the 5th and 6th decades. The overall 5-year survival rate is approximately 68%. Approximately 59% occur on the vocal folds (or glottis), 40% occur above the vocal folds (or supraglottis), and the remaining 1% are found to begin below the vocal folds (the subglottis).
