Laryngeal cancer

(p.359) Chapter 20 Laryngeal cancer

Paolo Boffetta

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews studies on the link between smoking and laryngeal cancer. Tobacco smoking plays by far the largest aetiological role in laryngeal carcinogenesis, either alone or in combination with other factors, and tobacco control remains the main avenue for prevention of this disease. The decline in recent decades in the incidence of laryngeal cancer among men in some regions in which tobacco control has been implemented more effectively suggests that prevention of this disease through the avoidance of its major cause is possible.
