Possible: Tobacco is the commonest cause of throat cancer. The cause may not be known in some patients. Throat cancer has occured in singers but it is difficult to know if singing caused the cancer.

LIving Life: Now, throat cancers can appear in humans who do not smoke. But, singing is in no way a risk for developing throat cancer.
