Laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancers are usually treated with surgery. Different procedures to extract the cancer and often other tissues near the larynx or hypopharynx can be used depending on the form, stage, position, and other tissues involved. Almost any surgery involves removing the cancer along with a rim (margin) of healthy tissue around it.
