Combined use of alcoholic drinks and tobacco products can increase the risk of developing laryngeal cancer by 80 times and people who only smoke cigarettes are 40 times more likely to get the cancer (than non-smokers), said Dr Navid Ahmadi Ruzbehani, secretary of the 3rd National Congress on Head and Neck Tumors, to be held August 10-11 at Tehran’s Milad Tower Conference Hall. “The rate of cancer in Iran is equal to the global average rate which is 2-3 per 100,000 people,” ISNA quoted him, as saying. Laryngeal cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the larynx. Signs and symptoms of laryngeal cancer include a sore throat and ear pain.
