|What is Larynx Tumor Treatment?|
The treatment for larynx tumor depends on how big the size of tumor. The main treatment for tumor of the voice box is radiotherapy or surgery.

- Endoscopic resection
Endoscopic resection can be used in early stage larynx cancer. This treatment occurs by using a microscope to get a magnified view of the larynx. This allows them to remove the cancer either with a laser or small surgical instruments. Other than that and endoscopic resection is carried out under general anaesthetic. So the patient will be unconscious during the procedure and won’t feel any pain.

However vocal cords will be removed, the patient won’t be able to speak in the usual way after the operation. The surgeon will need to create a permanent hole in neck to help breath after the operation.
Radiotherapy usually used for controlled doses of high-energy radiation to destroy tumor cells. It can be used as a treatment on its own for early-stage larynx tumor, or it can be used before or after surgery to stop tumor cells returning. To ensure the beams are directed at the exact area, a special plastic mask will be made to hold head in the right position. For the first radiotherapy, a mould of face will be taken to make the mask. Radiotherapy have a side affect such as sore, red skin, mouth ulcers, sore mouth and throat, dry mouth, loss of taste, tiredness and feeling sick.
