Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Pharyngeal cancer after treatment. Neck of a 57- year-old man after surgery and radiotherapy to treat cancer of the pharynx. The pharynx is the muscular tube which joins the back of the mouth to the oesophagus (gullet). Cancer cells divide rapidly in a chaotic manner. Cancer may be treated by surgical removal of the abnormal cells, or with radiation. Directing ionizing radiation through a tumour destroys or slows the growth of the cancerous tissue. In this case, an external application of X-ray beams was used.
