what is vocal squamous cell carcinoma staging-T1 (confined to vocal cords) and some
-T2 (tumor extending to the supraglottis or subglottis with impaired vocal cord mobility)
-T3 (tumor confined to the larynx with vocal cord fixation)
-T4 lesions (tumor invading through the thyroid cartilage or with direct extralaryngeal spread).
how to treat squamous cell carcinoma of the glottis t3As an attempt to preserve the larynx, induction chemotherapy followed by radiation
