Our expert says:
The best will be to consult a ENT specialist to have a laryngoscopy done, in order to visualise the vocal cords. There can definately be damage due to the smoking or most probably a growth on the vocal cords causing the hoarseness. It is very important to have this test done. It is not painful, just uncomfortable.
