Histology of pharynx cancer

Pharynx is mainly covered by squamous cell epithelium and thus it is logical that squamous cell carcinoma is the dominating cancer type in this region. Precursor lesions in the squamous epithelium can appear similar to lesions in the mouth and larynx.

Rare cancer types in this localization are:

  • adenocarcinoma
  • carcinoid
  • neuroendocrine carcinoma
  • others
