Posted in: Throat Cancer by Dr. Tarang Krishna

Diagnosis, staging and planning of throat cancer treatment is complex, making it important to stay informed and understand the affects, potential risk factors, prevention, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment options.

Throat cancer refers to the cancer that occurs in the neck region. Indian population has the highest incidence of throat cancer due to high tobacco use and consumption of gutka, khaini, etc. Excessive alcohol intake is also a strong contributor. Lack of awareness is another major cause, which results in delayed diagnosis and throat cancer being presented in advanced stages. Throat cancer occurs due to rampant growth of abnormal cells of the mucosal regions of the neck.

Throat cancer can be divided into four stages – Stage I to Stage IV – depending on the size and extent of cancer and how much it has spread to other areas of the body. The cancer is smaller in Stage I and more advanced in Stage IV, where it can be associated with spreading to other areas.

Cancer Healer Center offers leading throat cancer treatment in India with specialized cancer healer therapies. The treatment recognizes and targets cancer cells and attacks the cancer systematically, without the regular side affects of cancer treatments.

Recognizing Potential Signs

Though it might be difficult to detect throat cancer in its early stages. Common throat cancer symptoms include:

• A change in voice

• Trouble in swallowing

• Weight loss • Sore throat

• Persistent cough

• Constant need to clear your throat

• Ear pain

• Swollen lymph nodes in the neck

Diagnosing Throat Cancer

While diagnosing the cancer, your doctor may ask you about your symptoms and medical history. They may suspect throat cancer, if you’ve been experiencing the above mentioned symptoms.

Throat cancer diagnosis may involve performing direct or indirect laryngoscopy, which gives the doctor a closer view of the throat. If the test reveals abnormalities, the doctor may take a tissue sample and test it for cancer.

Reducing the Risk for Throat Cancer

While the genetic factors related to throat cancer cannot be controlled, there are ways in which the overall risk of developing cancer can be reduced. Following are some of the ways:

• Make sure you get regular screening if you fall under high risk category for throat cancer

• Regular self examination should be done, and consult a doctor if you observe abnormalities

• Smokers are at a 15% greater risk of throat cancer, therefore quit smoking

• Follow a healthy lifestyle

• Reduce alcohol consumption

• Avoid intake of tobacco

• Maintain a good oral hygiene
