Early-stage invasive glottic cancer, endoscopic surgical removal or radiation therapy are both equally effective with similar functional outcomes. The treatment modality depends on the patient’s wishes and compliance and the surgeon's and the institution's preferences and experience. Transoral laser microsurgery is ideal for the treatment of early-intermediate glottic cancer with or without post operative radiotherapy.
