Throat cancer: Hello, the most common type of throat cancer is called squamous cell carcinoma. This type of cancer is very dangerous because it spreads so quickly. However, there are a few important variables that affect each patient individually. First where is the cancer originating? If it comes from the vocal cords or from the tongue. This is very important. Also the grade of the cancer itself. Good luck.
