What is the Larynx?
The larynx is the upper portion of the windpipe ("trachea") which has a two main functions: conducting air down into the lungs, and producing speech in humans. The human larynx is composed of 3 areas: supraglottis, glottis, and subglottis. The glottis is literally the "voicebox" and contains the paired vocal cords. The subglottis extends about 1/2" below the glottis, while the supraglottis extends about 2 inches above the vocal cords. The epiglottis , which is a flap of flesh that folds down over the trachea to protect the lungs during swallowing, is part of the supraglottis. The whole larynx is in front of the foodpipe ("esophagus") and is just behind the skin of the throat.
Placing a finger directly under the "Adams apple" (which is a movable bone in the neck called the hyoid) and humming allows you to feel the vocal cords vibrating right under your finger. Only a thin membrane and the skin of the neck separate the vocal cords from your finger at this point; doctors use it as a landmark to insert an emergency air tube ("cricothyrotomy") in situations where a patient's upper airway is blocked. The area of the vocal cords is the narrowest part of the airway and the easiest to block by tumor or an object swallowed "the wrong way".
All the air we breath in and out all passes over the vocal cords, which come together to raise the pitch of our voice. A special muscle connects to the vocal cords to tighten them; cancers can invade this muscle and then limit the action (

Search for Quitting Smoking for larynx Cancer for Death and Dying
Excellent Book: Living With The End In Mind Search PubMed for Larynx Cancer Somerset is located in south central Kentucky, in the hills of Appalachia. Since my practice started in Somerset, I have evaluated 68 patients with invasive cancer (squamous cell carcinoma) of the voice box (larynx). 65 patients smoked. 64 patients had a 20 pack year, or greater, history of smoking (smoking 1/2 pack per day for 40 years). Two patients had severe GE Reflux and in one patient the cause of the cancer was unknown. The average age was 64 years. The average length of smoking was 61 pack years. (A pack year is one pack per day smoked in one year, or one-half pack per day smoked over two years.) 14 patients had quit smoking. Four patients had quit more than 25 years prior to developing the cancer. Exposure to the carcinogens in tobacco can cause permanent genetic damage in the cells and tumors can develop years later. Fifteen of these patients were treated with a laryngectomy (had their voice box removed).

Larynx Cancer
What is the larynx?
The larynx, also called the voice box, is a 2-inch-long, tube- shaped organ in the neck. We use the larynx when we breathe, talk, or swallow. The larynx is at the top of the windpipe (trachea). Its walls are made of cartilage. The large cartilage that forms the front of the larynx is sometimes called the Adam's apple. The vocal cords, two bands of muscle, form a "V" inside the larynx. Each time we inhale (breathe in), air goes into our nose or mouth, then through the larynx, down the trachea, and into our lungs. When we exhale (breathe out), the air goes the other way. When we breathe, the vocal cords are relaxed, and air moves through the space between them without making any sound. When we talk, the vocal cords tighten up and move closer together. Air from the lungs is forced between them and makes them vibrate, producing the sound of our voice. The tongue, lips, and teeth form this sound into words.

About The Author

Española Traducción

Tobacco use and smoking are very dangerous addictions which commonly cause a wide variety of diseases, cancer and death. The vast majority of tobacco users and smokers are hooked when they are children. During this time period they are easily influenced by peer pressure and advertising. Once hooked, the majority of tobacco users become hopelessly addicted.
More than 5 million children living today will die prematurely because of a decision they will make as adolescents-the decision to use tobacco and smoke cigarettes. View our new FLASH Enhanced Tobacco Website !!!

Tobacco Control In the Wake of the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement

Studies indicate that nonsmokers are also adversely affected by environmental tobacco smoke. There are 4000 chemicals in tobacco with 100 identified poisons and 63 known drugs which cause cancer. The most talked about drug in tobacco is nicotine. Nicotine is vasoconstrictor and a nerve toxin, it has been classified as a class I insecticide. Other poisons include: Arsenic, Cyanide, Formaldehyde (used to embalm bodies), Ammonia Bromide (a toilet cleaner )- Ref. 1.

Larynx Cancer - What Is It?
(Explanation and Information Links) Last Update - 3 August 2004)
: What is the Larynx
While most of you may be very familiar with the larynx and its functions, perhaps some of you are not. With this in mind, I found a great little article written at the Chicago Voice Center which is very descriptive (with pictures). You can access it HERE
: What is larynx cancer; what causes it; how is it diagnosed and treated?
Laryngeal cancer can occur in numerous locations in the throat. It can have several causes - but smoking, alcohol, or simply having "bad genes" seem to be among the leading culprits. (In addition to owning several pair of "bad jeans", I also smoked heavily, was fond of vodka and gin martinis AND was exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam - a perfect candidate!).
The most common early symptoms are a sore throat that will not go away and/or a slowly developing hoarseness of voice. Diagnosis is normally relatively simple and painless; the treatments, however, will vary with the location and severity of the disease. To date, I've found thirty-one worthwhile sites out on the WEB which talk about the disease, its symptoms, its treatment and "post-op support" in fairly clear language - plus they will provide you additional "links" to other information, if you wish. Please do take a look at them:

This website is aimed at the different groups of people interested in the life of a Laryngectomee. You could be the expectant patient, a relative or friend with obvious interests or a medical practitioner who wants to find out about how we all think and feel. The web is a great medium for this as it enables people throughout the world to share their experiences by just performing a few clicks. The journey for a lary (that's what we call a laryngectomee for short) starts with some damage to their larynx. This might be cancer or it could simply be a result of an accident. The end product is the same - the laryn x will need removing and the neck area re-molded to facilitate eating and breathing. In the case of cancer it may be possible for radio-therapy to produce a complete cure but for many cancer patients the only remedy is a complete laryngectomy. This site aims to inform and console the prospective lary, family and friends and show that although not ideal the operation can and does leave us with a valued life-style.
