Caption: Larynx cancer. Light micrograph of a section through the larynx revealing carcinoma cancer. The irregularly-shaped areas of cancer (dark mauve) are made up of large cells and lie within the mucus-producing mucin glands. Around these cancerous regions are neutrophil white blood cells (dark dots) which are found at sites of infection. Carcinoma is a cancer arising in the epithelial cells that line the body's surface. The larynx, or voice-box, produces the voice and prevents food from entering the airways during swallowing. Radiotherapy and laser treatment is used in most cases, although the larynx may have to be removed. Haemotoxylin & Eosin stain. Magnification unknown.
