Recent reported evidence indicates that vocal cord carcinoma is evolving similarly to oropharyngeal cancer with an increasing number of patients without a smoking history having human papillomavirus (HPV) disease.
Observations also suggest that an increasing number of patients who present with glottic carcinoma are younger than has been reported in the past.
Therefore, an investigation was done to examine the incidence of glottic carcinoma in patients 30 years old (y/o) or younger.
In this investigation, an increased incidence of HPV-positive glottic cancer in patients 30 y/o or younger was documented in the past 14 years.
This finding further supports the concept that glottic carcinoma is an evolving disease, and it demonstrates the increasing importance of discriminating potential glottic carcinomas in young patients from benign low-risk HPV recurrent respiratory papillomatosis.
