Laryngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

  • Laryngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma mostly occurs in adult smokers although it is also occasionally associated with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). When they arise on the true vocal cords, termed 'glottic' carcinomas, they present early with hoarseness and thus have a better prognosis. Alternatively, those that arise above or below the true vocal cords present much later in the disease course and have a much poorer prognosis. Larygneal SCCs represent the most common malignant tumor of the larynx .
