(For malignant laryngeal tumors see Laryngeal cancer.) Benign laryngeal tumors such as juvenile papillomas, hemangiomas, fibroma, chondroma, myxoma and neurofibromas can occur in all Larynxbereichen. Papillomas and neurofibromas can become malignant. The symptoms of benign laryngeal tumors include hoarseness, breathy (breathy) voice, dyspnea, aspiration, dysphagia ,, otalgia (ear pain) and hemoptysis. As otalgia earache are denoted by irritation or bloating of the vagus nerve, and these are often caused by a malignant tumor growing. The diagnosis of benign laryngeal tumors is based on the direct or indirect visualization of the larynx with supplementary CT scan. By removing the tumor, the voice can restore an intact lock function and free breathing passage. Smaller tumors can be excised endoscopically and under general anesthesia with the CO2 laser. If larger lesions have exceeded the Larynxgrenzen is often a pharyngotomy or Larynxfistel required.
