Laser interventions for early cancer in the upper aerodigestive tract

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The glottis is a unique subsite of the aerodigestive tract where cancer often presents early. A small lesion of the vocal fold often causes a marked change in an individual’s voice, leading to the discovery of early glottic cancer. Furthermore, the glottis is a unique subsite of head and neck cancer as its lymphatic drainage is sparse. This combination of factors causes a large number of glottic cancers to present early without spread to adjacent lymph nodes.
