stage II laryngeal cancer  listen  (... luh-RIN-jee-ul KAN-ser)

  Stage II depends on where the cancer started. If it started in the supraglottis, then cancer is in more than one area of the supraglottis or surrounding tissue. If it started in the glottis, then cancer has spread to the supraglottis and/or the subglottis, and/or the vocal cords cannot move normally. If it started in the subglottis, then cancer has spread to one or both vocal cords, which may not move normally.
