Prevention

No sure way exists to prevent hypoharyngeal cancer. However, if you′re concerned about your risk of hypopharyngeal carcinoma, you may consider avoiding habits that have been associated with the disease. For instance, you may:

  • Cut back on the amount of salt-cured foods you eat or avoid these foods altogether
  • Stop smoking
  • Drink alcohol in moderation, if at all

The earlier cancer is detected the better are the chances of cure and complete recovery. It is important to realize that many cancers today are curable.

If you find anything abnormal, record it on a notebook and report it to your doctor. In case everything is normal, RELAX!
