Preventing laryngeal cancer thanks to knowledge of your DNA

The larynx (voice box) plays an important role in separating the windpipe and foodpipe and in voice production. In two-thirds of patients laryngeal cancer starts in the vocal cords. Hoarseness is the main symptom of the disease. Laryngeal cancer mainly affects men and usually develops between the ages of 50 and 70. The prognosis depends on the stage and location of the tumour, but the average five-year survival rate is around 77%.

Laryngeal cancer and heredity

The risk of laryngeal cancer is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of laryngeal cancer.
