  A 54-year-old male presents to his doctor's office with a history of a change in his voice that began a few months ago. At first he thought that this was a touch of “sore throat” and tried taking cough drops and other remedies, but it did not go away. Recently he has started getting “winded” when he tries to walk too fast. He has never been to a doctor before and has not had regular physicals. He has no history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, or other major illness. The only reason he is here he said is because his wife insisted that he gets checked up. He has worked at a local factory, turning out machined parts. He has been a cigarette smoker for the last 15 years, consuming a pack a day. He drinks a six pack of beer during the weekends and spends free time tending to the garden or watching football or other sports on TV. The most likely specific anatomic location for this patient's problem would be which of the following?

A: Supraglottic
B: Subglottic
C: Larynx
D: Glottic
E: Hypopharynx
F: Superior mediastinum
