throat cancer probably cancer larynx can be treated by radiation or surgery depending on stage. what type of surgery has done to your father should be mentioned. anyway artificial voice box reconstruction can be done surgically depending on previous extent of surgery. consult your ENT surgeon who will discuss this issue in detail.
