No: Cancer of the throat, that is squamous cancer arises thru a process of premalignant changes. This is ususally seen as Leukoplakia or a white patch. Sometimes a superficial ulcer is noted but these take time to transform. If previous scope was neg. I would watch for remission or progression with nodes in neck which would require re exam.
