This review highlights the current evidence base for the management of early glottic cancer. Recent results of a meta-analysis, systematic review, consecutive case series, and cost-utility studies are presented, with transoral laser (TOL) surgery and radiotherapy (XRT) as the two predominant treatment modalities. Between TOL surgery and XRT, evidence demonstrates similar oncologic, voice, and quality of life outcomes, with TOL surgery offering the advantage of reduced health care costs and shorter duration of treatment.
