Because throat cancer is usually caused by a person's behavior, it can be prevented. If you smoke, get help to quit. Don't use smokeless tobacco products. Eat a healthy, balanced diet. Use alcohol only in moderation. Most experts recommend that women have no more than one drink a day and that men have no more than two drinks a day.
