Health Technology Wales guidance on laryngeal biopsy
Health Technology Wales has published guidance on laryngeal biopsy for people with suspected head and neck cancer in outpatient settings.
Laryngeal biopsy uses a small instrument to remove a sample of cells from the larynx so it can be examined for signs of cancer.
It can be used to take a sample of the vocal cords or nearby parts of the throat.
The biopsy is carried out under local anaesthetic.
