Tests You May Need to Evaluate Laryngeal Cancer
Your doctor needs to know as much as possible about the cancer in order to recommend the most effective treatment. After you’ve been told you have laryngeal cancer, you may need these tests to learn more about its size, location, and how far it has spread:
Computed tomography (CT) scan. A CT scan is a special X-ray used to determine the location and the extent, or stage, of the cancer in the larynx, as well as whether it involves any other parts of the body, including the neck. A scanner directs X-ray beams at the body from various angles. The X-rays are then put together by a computer to get a detailed picture of the body.
