Throat cancer refers to cancerous tumors that develop in the Nasopharynx (upper part of the throat, behind the nose), Oropharynx (the middle part of the throat), Hypopharynx (the bottom part of the throat) and larynx (voice box).
The throat also known as pharynx is a 5-inch long tube that runs from the nose to the neck. Factors that increase your risk of throat cancer include:
Age: Cancer risk increases as you grow old (most common over the age of 65)
Tobacco: Including chewing tobacco and smoking
Alcohol: Long term regular drinkers have higher chances of getting cancer
Diet: Lack of antioxidants in diet (lack of fruits and vegetables)
Infections: Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection, contracting Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and Gastroesophageal reflux disease increase the risk.
At Bhargava Hospital, throat cancer is treated by using Cancer Healer therapy. A therapy which fights against cancer without any side effects like hair loss, damage to normal cells and bone loss. It trains the immune system to recognize and target cancer cells and attack the cancer systematically, throughout the body. There are different lines of treatment available for different types of cancers which are decided by our team of doctors after evaluating the reports based on the type and spread of cancer.
