Contact Granuloma/Contact Ulcer
Contact granulomas or contact ulcers are formed as a result of injury to the delicate tissues of the larynx.
Vocal Fold Motion Impairment
Vocal fold motion impairment is of two major types: unilateral (more common) and bilateral. These types differ in their seriousness, symptoms and treatment.
Epiglottitis
The epiglottis is the flap of tissue located just above the windpipe (trachea) that directs the flow of air and food in the throat. When we breathe, the epiglottis is positioned so that air goes into the lungs.
Croup
Croup is a common respiratory illness in children that causes a hoarse voice and a brassy, barking cough.
Vocal Fold Nodules And Cysts
Vocal fold nodules and cysts are benign (noncancerous) growths that can affect people of all ages. Although their symptoms are similar, their cause and treatment usually differ.
Chronic Laryngitis
Laryngitis is an inflammation of the larynx, the "voice box" that contains the vocal cords in the upper portion of the neck. Chronic laryngitis is a more persistent disorder that produces lingering hoarseness and other voice changes.
Laryngitis
Laryngitis is an inflammation or infection of the voice box (larynx) and the vocal cords it contains.
Peritonsillar Abscess
The peritonsillar space lies between each tonsil and the wall of the throat. An infection can cause a pus-filled swelling (abscess) to develop in this space.
Vocal Cord Disorders
The vocal cords are two bands of elastic muscle tissue. They are located side by side in the voice box (larynx) just above the windpipe (trachea). Like other tissues in the body, vocal cords can be strained and damaged.
Sore Throat (Pharyngitis)
A sore throat, also called a throat infection or pharyngitis, is a painful inflammation of the back part of the throat (pharynx).

Cancer
Cancer of the Larynx
Like all cancers, laryngeal cancer is the result of uncontrolled division by the body's cells.

Throat cancer occurs when cells in the organs used for breathing, speaking, and swallowing begin to divide rapidly and abnormally.
