According to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, certain oropharyngeal cancers are at risk for certain human papillomavirus (HPV) infections, which are also linked to throat cancer. HPV is a sexually transmitted virus.
In fact, some throat cancer patients also receive esophageal, lung, or bladder cancer diagnoses at the same time, which suggests that throat cancer and other cancers may share some risk factors.
- Stage 0:Only the top layer of cells in the throat region that is affected by the tumor are affected.
- Stage 1:Only the area of the throat where it first appeared is affected by the tumor, which is less than 2 cm.
- Stage 2:The tumor is 2 to 4 cm in size or it might have spread into the surrounding area.
- Stage 3:The tumor has reached one or more lymph nodes, is larger than 4 cm, or has spread to other throat structures.
- Stage 4:To distant organs or lymph nodes, the tumor has spread.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
An MRI scan looks for tumors and can show whether cancer has spread to other body parts. It is an imaging test that uses radio waves and powerful magnets to produce precise images of the inside of your neck.
Positron emission tomography (PET scan)
PET scans are a type of imaging test that creates images of radioactive areas in your body by injecting a radioactive dye into your blood. These scans can be used to diagnose advanced cancer.
Computed tomography (CT scan)
The cross-sectional image of your body is produced by this imaging test using X-rays, and soft tissue and organ images are also produced.
A tumor’s size can be determined by this scan, as well as whether the tumor has spread to other organs like the lymph nodes or the lungs.
If you have trouble swallowing, your doctor may recommend a barium swallow, a test that produces X-ray images of your throat and esophagus while you drink a thick liquid to coat them.
A chest X-ray will be required to look for any anomalies if your doctor thinks the cancer has spread to your lungs.
