Cancer Back to Patient Support Group list
Laryngectomy Association of Ireland


Laryngectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the voice box or larynx. This operation is generally performed because of the presence of cancer, either on the vocal chords or in a region close to the larynx.

For many people, coping with life after their voice box has been removed requires a psychological adjustment. This adjustment is made easier by communicating with other patients who have been through the same situation.

  • Help patients come to terms with their diagnosis of laryngeal cancer.
  • Discuss the feeling and anxieties that may be experienced by parents who are told they have to have surgery / radiotherapy for their throat cancer.
  • Provide support and advice to patients following their treatment.
