Under what names can laryngeal cancer be diagnosed?

Throat/laryngeal/pharyngeal cancer misdiagnosis and asbestos exposure work history
Asbestos-related diseases in the early stages often mimic other common respiratory disorders.
Misdiagnosis occurs when throat cancer is wrongly diagnosed as a common cold and sore throat. Differentiating throat cancer from other diseases can be quite challenging and for this reason, we recommend seeking a second opinion from a pulmonologist who specializes in asbestos-related diseases.
Getting diagnosed correctly at an early stage is important as it opens to you the most effective treatment options and increases your chances of survival.
About 84% of patients who have been diagnosed in stage 1 have been able to survive for more than 5 years. An accurate diagnosis of your condition, on the other hand, helps you recover the right amount of financial compensation from the asbestos trust funds. If you have been exposed to asbestos at your workplace, make sure you receive annual health screening to rule out signs of asbestos-related diseases.
