Asbestos exposure has been identified as a cause of cancer of the larynx. Asbestos fibers breathed through the mouth can lodge in the larynx, eventually causing the disease.

What’s the problem?
Laryngeal cancer may also be called cancer of the larynx or laryngeal carcinoma. Most laryngeal cancers are squamous cell carcinomas, reflecting their origin from the squamous cells which form the majority of the laryngeal epithelium. Cancer can develop in any part of the larynx, but the cure rate is affected by the location of the tumor.
The American Cancer Society estimates that about 9,500 new cases of laryngeal cancer will occur this year and that about 3,740 people will die from it. The cumulative results of more than 50 epidemiological studies provided compelling evidence that asbestos exposure is associated with an increased incidence of laryngeal cancer and that the risk increases with the intensity and duration of exposure, the committee found. Smoking alone or in combination with drinking may contribute to the accumulation of asbestos fibers in the lining of the larynx.
