Hi, Chemo radiation for vocal cord carcinoma is a strategy known as organ preservation which is being used for carcinoma larynx. The sweating you are asking about seems to be unrelated to your disease or treatment, in case your disease is gone. Please consult a physician and get his/her opinion as unlikely to be because of Carcinoma larynx. Regards
