Laryngeal tumors are usually starts at the vocal cords. Vocal cords are natural barriers for the cancer spread. Unless the tumor keeps growing and spreads to the levels below and above the vocal cords it will start to spread.

Vocal cord tumors can be treated endolaryngealy by LASER. The patient tends not to talk for a month for a precaution. After this period the voice box will heal and speaking can be possible. Trans-oral microscopic larynx surgery is done by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mete İnançlı for a Glottic T2N0M0 Laryngeal Carcinoma last week.

Laser gives us the advantage of less pain, less bleeding and shorter healing time.
