A recent study found that 97% of people with laryngeal cancer were former or current tobacco smokers

In a recent study published in the Journal of Global Oncology in 2018, approximately 79% of the laryngeal cancer patients were current smokers, whereas over 18% of the participants were former smokers.Similar to lung cancer, the majority of cases of laryngeal cancer can be prevented, as they are often the consequence of cigarette smoking. There are multiple types of laryngeal cancer, the most common being squamous cell carcinoma. The most usual symptoms of laryngeal cancer, which is a form of throat cancer, include:
  • a change in your voice, such as sounding hoarse
  • pain when swallowing or difficulty swallowing
  • a lump or swelling in your neck
  • a persistent cough
  • a constant sore throat or earache
  • difficulty breathing, in severe cases
