Primary radiation therapy for the larynx


Radiation therapy is directed against the primary tumor. Regional lymph nodes are also irradiated for regional metastases. 

Depending on the localization of the primary tumor and/or T stage, regional lymph nodes may have to be irradiated due to high probability of microscopic disease.

Treatment is given alone or in combination with surgery (T4), possibly chemotherapy (T3-T4).

The target volume is adapted individually.


  • Laryngeal cancer


  • Eliminate tumor
  • Reduce tumor volume
  • Remove or limit extent of regional metastases
