Multivariate analysis indicates that disease-specific survival of individuals with advanced laryngeal cancer was improved for those receiving neoadjuvant therapy.
Almost two-thirds of patients with T4a larynx ("voice box") cancer are not receiving a total laryngectomy, despite published guidelines.
A single academic center performing a high rate of surgical therapy, including total laryngectomy, to treat advanced-stage laryngeal cancer had a higher 5-year survival rate than national levels in a small study.

Identifying symptom patterns can predict variations over time in oropharyngeal and laryngeal cancersMay 09, 2012
Visual graphical analysis can help predict the way individual patients will experience side effects of treatment over time by identifying patterns.
Palliative treatments, death outside of the hospital, and involvement by a palliative care team all improve the end-of-life experience for persons with head and neck cancer.
