I suggest that you consult an ENT specialist. The doctor will do an examination, in order to visualise your throat box and vocal cords, to determine if there is any presence of an abnormal growth. The examination is painless and is done in the doctor's office. Please do not be too concerned, as your symptoms might merely be due to chronic sinusitis with a post nasal drip.

You sound worried... why don''t you go to the doctor? It could be serious.
