Is there a cure for laryngeal cancer?

Laryngeal cancer can be cured if it is in an early stage. As it progresses and spreads, it becomes more difficult to control. When treating laryngeal cancer, sometimes several techniques will be combined in order to achieve the best results. Often times, in later stages, chemotherapy will be combined with radiation therapy, and the cancer may be cured. If laryngeal cancer is at an advanced stage, a cure may be impossible.
