Persistent change in the voice

Consult your doctor promptly if you have hoarseness or loss or change of voice that is recurrent or lasts more than 2 weeks. There is a slight possibility of cancer of the larynx, especially if you are over 40 and smoke.

Possible cause and action Overuse of the vocal cords - for example, due to shouting over loud music or cheering at a football match - can cause the vocal cords to become inflamed. Try self-help measures (see Managing laryngitis, below).
