As are so many others, this area is affected by diet, environmental toxins and various radiations and hereditary factors. The most common risk factors include heavy smoking or exposure to fumes or chemical compounds that irritate the laryngeal and/or hypo-pharyngeal areas. Out of control consumption of alcohol is another common factor in this condition.

Symptoms include a persistent cough, a chronically hoarse throat, constant laryngitis, or a persistent sore throat.
