O'BRIEN, M. D. Written for NBA Service Cancer of the larynx (voice box) usually develops in men between 40 and 70 years old. It might nlso develop in women. Growth is often preceded by thickening of the; vocal cords. Cancer rarely develops n a normal larynx. Contrary to popular belief, benign tumors of the larynx seldom tiirn into cancer. This is of Interest to the large nnmber of patients who have paplllomas In the larynx. As benign growths are much more common than cancers, patients should not fear throat examination because of the idea that all growths in the larynx nre cancerous. The earliest symptom .of cancer of the larynx Is change In Die voice. This is a hiiskiness or hoarseness wfilch starts as soon as Ihe growth develops. Other symptoms are easy fatigue of the voice, inability to clear the throat of phlegm, a feeling of rawness, dryness, or irritation as If something Is stuck In the throat. The strong. rough, painless voice of vocal cord involvement is characteristic of Uvi disease. Patients in the early sta- ,ges do not feel sick, and therefore often delay seeking medical advice. WARNING SIGNS Unfortunately In giving the early signs of cancer In any part of the body it is necessary to list "warning" signs. All of these Warnings signs can be caused by con- slfins appear lhat found in the early Ihcse warning cancer can be .tneos. There iire many things which cause throat irritation bill there iirfi only a few conditions which cause permuru'iit change In the voice in older patients. When real voice changes occur, cancer should be suspected. 'Hie physician by cx- aming Ihe throat with a simple | Bits of News [Mostly Personal ' Mr. and Mrs. II. N.

Ill, hnve gone lo Brock- larynx nrowths and make the dlag- land, Ark., where they are giu-sls nosis. I of his parents. , Treatment, of cancer of the larynx Is usually surgical. The growth must be removed if permanent cure- Is to be obtained. Cure Is practically certain in growths which have not extended beyond the confines of the IfU'yngeal box. Use of X-ray and radium is limited to Ihose patients In whom its use is recommended by the attending |)hy- ' slcian.. There have been important advances in the treatment of cancer of the Larynx recently, notably In belter preparation of the pa- tieiu for o|>eiation. C'ATUI IN TIMK -Cancer of the larynx has a favorable outcome when token In time. When patients come early, the operation can be more limited in nature. Individuals in middle and laic life with voice difficulty •extending over a period of two or Ihreex reeks, should consider thc possibility of cancer of the larynx. Following Ihe removal of the Ira.vnx, thc patient breathes through an opening in Ihe neck and can ditlons which are not cancer. It often be taught lo speak distinctly is only by being examined when and readily by other means.
