Tongue cancer raises the very obvious image of the victim losing his or her tongue in surgery. That's a clear image for people to home in on, and focus on when the victim is an actor.

It may be true that throat cancer could lead to similar surgery, but it doesn't raise the same obvious image. If indeed the surgeries can be similar, one would have to have that knowledge to have it raise the same image. It's not obvious.
