Cancer of the throat (pharynx) or voice box is referred to as throat cancer (larynx). The muscular tube that runs from behind your nose to your neck is your throat. The flat cells that line the inside of your throat are where most throat cancers start. Your voice box, which is located right below your throat, is also vulnerable to throat cancer. The vocal cords vibrate to generate sound when you speak, and the voice box is comprised of cartilage.
