Hypopharyngeal cancer is a malignancy that affects the areas of the neck and throat. The hypopharynx is the part of the throat (the pharynx) and lies beside and behind your larynx. Almost all cancers in the hypopharynx develop from the flat cells called squamous cells, which are situated in the innermost tissue lining the hypopharynx. Any cancer that starts in this layer of cells is called squamous cell carcinoma. Symptoms include sore throat, pain radiating to the ear, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing and the sensation of having a lump in the throat.. The severity, stage and possible spread of the cancer must be assessed urgently before treatment can be administered
