Transcript: Laryngeal Cancer Background Info Background Info Background Information Background Information Laryngeal cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the larynx. The larynx is a part of the throat, between the base of the tongue and the trachea. The larynx contains the vocal cords, which vibrate and make sound when air is directed against them. The sound echoes through the pharynx, mouth, and nose to make a person's voice. Background Information Background Information There are three main parts of the larynx: Supraglottis: The upper part of the larynx above the vocal cords, including the epiglottis. Glottis: The middle part of the larynx where the vocal cords are located. Subglottis: The lower part of the larynx between the vocal cords and the trachea (windpipe). Background Information Background Information Most laryngeal cancers form in squamous cells, the thin, flat cells lining the inside of the larynx. Laryngeal cancer is a type of head and neck cancer. Background Information Background Information Approximately 13,150 people are diagnosed with laryngeal cancer each year. About 60% start in the glottis, 35% in the supraglottis and the rest develop in the subglottis or overlap more than one area. Background Information Background Information It is more common in men than women and most commonly diagnosed between the ages of 55-64. The front of the larynx in men, where the central plates form a ridge, is often referred to as the “Adam’s Apple” The larynx produces raw sound, which is formed into recognizable sounds through the mouth. Background Infomation Background Infomation Sypmtoms Sypmtoms A sore throat or cough that does not go away. Trouble or pain when swallowing. Ear pain. A lump in the neck or throat. A change or hoarseness in the voice. Diagnostic Tests Diagnostic Tests Physical exam of the throat and neck: An exam to check the throat and neck for abnormal areas. The doctor will feel the inside of the mouth with a gloved finger and examine the mouth and throat with a small long-handled mirror and light. The neck will be felt for swollen lymph nodes. Diagnostic Tests Diagnostic Tests Biopsy : The removal of cells or tissues so they can be viewed under a microscope by a pathologist to check for signs of cancer. The sample of tissue may be removed during one of the following procedures: Laryngoscopy : A procedure to look at the larynx (voice box) for abnormal areas. A mirror or a laryngoscope (a thin, tube-like instrument with a light and a lens for viewing) is inserted through the mouth to see the larynx. A special tool on the laryngoscope may be used to remove samples of tissue. Endoscopy : A procedure to look at organs and tissues inside the body, such as the throat, esophagus, and trachea to check for abnormal areas. An endoscope (a thin, lighted tube with a light and a lens for viewing) is inserted through an opening in the body, such as the mouth. A special tool on the endoscope may be used to remove samples of tissue. Diagnostic Tests Diagnostic Tests CT scan (CAT scan): A procedure that makes a series of detailed pictures of areas inside the body, taken from different angles. The pictures are made by a computer linked to an x-ray machine. A dye may be injected into a vein or swallowed to help the organs or tissues show up more clearly. This procedure is also called computed tomography, computerized tomography, or computerized axial tomography. Diagonostic Tests Diagonostic Tests PET scan (positron emission tomography scan): A procedure to find malignant tumor cells in the body. A small amount of radioactive glucose (sugar) is injected into a vein. The PET scanner rotates around the body and makes a picture of where glucose is being used in the body. Malignant tumor cells show up brighter in the picture because they are more active and take up more glucose than normal cells do. Diagnostic Tests Diagnostic Tests Bone scan : A procedure to check if there are rapidly dividing cells, such as cancer cells, in the bone. A very small amount of radioactive material is injected into a vein and travels through the bloodstream. The radioactive material collects in the bones with cancer and is detected by a scanner. Diagonostic Tests Diagonostic Tests Barium swallow : A series of x-rays of the esophagus and stomach. The patient drinks a liquid that contains barium (a silver-white metallic compound). The liquid coats the esophagus and stomach, and x-rays are taken. This procedure is also called an upper GI series. Treatements Treatements The stage of the disease. The location and size of the tumor. Keeping the patient's ability to talk, eat, and breathe as normal as possible. Whether the cancer has come back (recurred). Lasar Surgery Lasar Surgery Photodynamic therapy (PDT) : you have an injection of a drug that makes laryngeal cancer cells sensitive to the laser light. PDT may also be used to control symptoms of advanced laryngeal cancer. The surgeon makes a cut in your

Leiomyosarcoma Cancer what is it? Works Cited Cancer is the general name for a group of more than 100 diseases. Although there are many kinds of cancer, all cancers start because abnormal cells grow out of control. Untreated cancers can cause serious illness and death stages of cancer From February 1973 to December 2011, 12 cases of esophageal leiomyosarcoma were identified. The principal symptoms included progressive dysphagia in 11 cases (91.7%), retrosternal/back pain in four (33.3%), weight loss in four (33.3%), upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage in two (16.7%), and emesis in two (16.7%) (National Center).

Transcript: Cancers That Are Commonly found in African Americans Treatment, once cancer is detected doctors determine two numerical scores that will define the patients treat and prognosis: Tumor Grading Cancer Staging Treat is decided based on: Age Stage of Disease General health Co-existing illnesses Therefore, Treatments include: Radical Prostatectomy Perineal Approach Cryosurgery Is A free, private support community for caregivers of people facing cancer. My Cancer Circle was created by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Boehringer Ingelheim") in collaboration with CancerCare. Lung Cancer Prostate Cancer is curable when detected early. Although, early stages of Prostate Cancer are often asymptomatic, so the disease often goes undetected. A routine phyical examination can help diagnosis Prostate Cancer along with the following tests: Digital Rectal Examination(DRE) Blood Test Transrectal Ultrasound Prostate Biopsy X-ray and Imaging Techniques There are people who care What puts you at risk of Breast Cancer? Age Family History of Breast Cancer Carrying the BRCA1 & BRCA2 genes History of abnormal Breast Biopsies Having 1st menstruation before age 12 Entering Menopause age after age 55 Having no children Daily alcohol consumption obesity and poor diet Breast exposure to radiation Postmenopausal Horone Replacement Therapy (HRT) How can you help those with Cancer? Colorectal Cancer Things that can put you at risk of Lung Cancer is exposure to: Cigarettes Cigarette Smoke Acronitrile Arsenic Asbestos Beryllium Chloromethylether Chromium Coal Products Ionizing Radiation Iron Oxide Mustard Gas Nickel Petroleum Uranium Vinyl Chloride The Colon is a 6-foot long muscular tube connecting the small intestines to the Rectum. The Rectum is an 8-in chamber that connects the colon to the anus, its job is to receive stool from the colon. Cancer that affects both the Colon and the Rectum. Colorectal Cancer occurs when some of the cells that line that line the colon or the rectum become abnormal and grow out of control. The abnormal growing cells create a tumor which is the cancer.

Prostate Cancer has no symptoms, however when the tumor is big or the cancer has spread to the nearby tissues, the following symptoms may occur: weak or interrupted flow of the urine frequent urination (especially at night) difficulty starting urination inability to urinate pain or burning sensation when urinating blood in the urine persistent pain in the lower back, hips, or thighs bone pain painful ejaculation is a disease in which cells in the prostate gland becomes abnormal and starts to grow uncontrollably, forming tumors. is a disease characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. If left untreated, this growth can spread beyond the lung in a process called metastasis into nearby tissue and, eventually, into other parts of the body The precise cause of Prostate Cancer is not yet known as of the early 2000s. However, several known factors for the disease include: Age over 55 African American Heritage Family History of the Disease Occupational exposure to cadmium or rubber High fat Diets High Plasma testosterone levels Breast Cancer is caused by the development of malignant cells in the breast. The Malignant cells originate in the lining of the milk glands or ducts of the breast( ductial epithelium), defining the malignancy as a cancer.
