Caption: Lymph node metastases. A large cancerous tumour seen on the throat of an 80 year-old male patient suffering from cancer of the larynx (the voice box). This tumour has formed in the lymph nodes due to malignant cells spreading throughout the body, a process known as metastases. Cancer of the larynx (also known as laryngeal cancer) most commonly occurs in heavy smokers. If discovered early, the cancerous cells can be removed using radiotherapy or laser therapy. Larger tumours require removal of the larynx (laryngectomy) or if metastatic (such as in this case) anticancer drugs and radiotherapy can relieve symptoms and temporarily arrest the progress of the disease.
