Thank you. Is anyone here min. 3 yrs. cancer free after receiving radiation only as a treatment for vocal cord cancer?
Hi, according to studies done, surgical treatment of early glottic cancers with total laryngectomy or open partial laryngectomy was associated with loss of normal voice or substantial decline in its quality. Radiation treatment has been associated with local control rates from 80%-95%, and shorter overall treatment times seemed to yield superior results. Good luck with his therapy.
