Causes & Risks of Throat Cancer

Commonly, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma affects the mouth, throat, larynx and lymph nodes of the neck. Throat cancer is of two types – squamous cell carcinoma (affects the flat cells lining of the throat) and adenocarcinoma (affects the glandular cells). The primary causes and risk factors involve smoking, alcohol intake, age over 65 years and sexually transmitted virus.

Symptoms & Diagnosis of Throat Cancer

Early signs and symptoms of throat cancer include changes in your voice, difficulty in swallowing, ear pain, a sore throat and a lump or sore that doesn’t heal. To check for throat cancer, doctors will perform a direct or indirect laryngoscopy. This procedure gives your doctor a closer view of the throat. The disease can be treated with either surgery or radiation in the early stages. The tumour can be surgically removed by performing endoscopic surgery, cordectomy and laryngectomy.

Last year Sonali Bendre was diagnosed with cancer and was being treated in the United States of America and Ayushmaan Khurana’s wife Tahira was also diagnosed with early stages of cancer. On the work front, Rakesh Roshan will soon commence the fourth instalment of the popular Krrish franchise. Krrish 4 is slated to hit the theatres on Christmas 2020. We wish a speedy recovery to Rakesh Roshan.
