Throat Cancer

The throat is a tube that runs from the back of the mouth down through the front part of the neck to join the oesophagus (the tube that carries food to the stomach).

Cancer of the throat may be treated by radiotherapy, surgery, chemotherapy or a combination of these, depending on the size of the tumour and whether it has spread to other tissues or not.
