Laryngeal Cancer Signs and Symptoms

There are several signs and symptoms that could be related to laryngeal cancer; however, it is important to remember that they can also be symptoms for other diseases. See your doctor if you have:

  • A change in your voice, such as unexplained hoarseness
  • A lump in the neck
  • Persistent sore throat
  • Ear pain not caused by an ear infection or other condition
  • Pain or difficulty when swallowing

Again, these could be symptomatic of something other than cancer. With that said, if any of these symptoms last for more than three weeks, it is a good idea to be checked by a doctor. If it is cancer, early detection can give you better treatment results.
