Malignant tumour of the larynx. The larynx is affected by both benign and malignant tumours. Squamous-cell carcinoma, the most common laryngeal malignancy, is associated with smoking and alcohol consumption; it is more common in men. treated with chemoradiation was undergoing screening esophagoscopy.

While the overall incidence of gastric carcinoma has decreased by 75% in the United States during the past 80 years, the incidence of proximal gastric and gastroesophageal gastroesophageal /gas·tro·esoph·a·ge·al/ (-e-sof?ah-je´al)
1. pertaining to the stomach and esophagus.
2. proceeding from the stomach to the esophagus. junction tumors (which have a poorer prognosis) has increased rapidly. The vast majority of gastric tumors are adenocarcinomas. Because patients often have no symptoms or only vague gastrointestinal complaints, most gastric tumors present at an advanced stage. Cure is dependent on complete resection, and early diagnosis greatly improves survival. In the case described here, the cancer was detected at an early stage. The lesion was removed, and the patient's prognosis for survival was good.
