Throat cancer information

What is throat cancer?

Throat cancer is a type of head and neck cancer that includes cancers of the mouth, tonsils, nose, sinuses, salivary glands and neck lymph nodes. The disease typically develops in the larynx (voice box) or pharynx (throat). Many throat cancer patients have a high risk of developing a secondary cancer, typically in the larynx, esophagus or lungs. After treatment ends, some patients may also develop another cancer in the lungs, mouth, throat or other nearby area.
