Hypopharyngeal cancer is a special type of cancer in which cancerous cells grow at the place where the larynx and esophagus meet up (hypopharynx). It is caused by high rate of smoking or alcoholism. Inflamed lymph nodes is the first sign of this cancer but the severe pain from throat to ears and difficulty in swallowing is also associated with it. For its treatment purposes physicians consider the age of patient and stage of cancer. According to that they may recommend chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgical procedure to cure it completely.
