Preventing throat cancer thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Throat cancer starts in the pharynx. This is made up of three different sections: the nasopharynx, oropharynx and laryngopharynx. A throat tumour generally starts in the mucous membrane and initially the symptoms are unclear. This means that the tumour is often only detected at a late stage. Throat cancer is more common in men than women and usually affects people over the age of 45. Smoking and excessive drinking are significant risk factors.

Throat cancer and heredity

The risk of throat 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 throat cancer.
