Hello

Thanks for the question on HealthReplies.com

Laryngeal cancer is a tumor that grows in the tissue of the voice box (larynx). This condition occurs due to the growth of cells in the larynx area that is not normal and uncontrolled. The trigger for this abnormal growth is not known with certainty. However, there are several risk factors that are thought to trigger laryngeal cancer, namely:

History of smoking Excessive drinking habits History of cancer in the head or neck suffered by family members Exposure to certain chemical compounds for the long term, such as asbestos dust For the level of danger from laryngeal cancer, this type of cancer has quite a lot of therapeutic success if it has been found or diagnosed at an early stage of the cancer.

Treatment of this laryngeal tumor can be in the form of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery. Therapy will be adjusted by the doctor based on the size of the tumor and the extent of spread of the tumor itself. So if indeed the doctor who treats your father has suggested surgery, then this is the best choice for the management of laryngeal tumors in your father. But if you really want to try to consider other therapies, then it's best to have a discussion with the doctor who treated your father.

That's all the information we can convey. May be useful
