There were 505 cases of fresh laryngeal cancer in Aichi prefecture included 477 in men, 28 in women. The rate was 1.60 per 100,000 person-years (3.02 in men, 0.18 in women). There were 344 cases of the glottic type, 116 of the supraglottic and 23 of the subglottic type. Lymphnode metastasis occurred in 59.4% of the supraglottic type, and 30.3% of the subglottic type.
