Types of laryngeal cancer
Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common type of laryngeal cancer. It develops in the flat, scale-like cells that line the throat.
Adenocarcinoma begins in the glandular cells of the larynx that release mucus. This type of laryngeal cancer is rare.
Other types of laryngeal cancer include: lymphoepithelioma, spindle cell carcinoma, verrucous cancer, undifferentiated carcinoma and cancers of the lymph nodes, called lymphoma.
