Voice and Throat
Hoarseness is due to a voice box (larynx) problem. Common voice box problems include infection (laryngitis), vocal cord nodules or cysts and rarely, cancer.
Throat problems usually present with difficulty or painful swallowing or a lump in the throat sensation. Common throat disorders include acid reflux, infections or rarely, throat cancer.
Hoarseness or throat symptoms that persist for more than a few weeks should have a nasopharyngoscopy done to determine the cause of the problem.
