Canker sore: It's possible you may have a viral infection which can cause both the sore and a sore throat. Or, they may not be related. The canker sore should heal in 7-10 days. If the sore throat lingers for more than 3 days, see your medical doctor.

Call doctor: It's possible you might have some canker sores in your throat. Call your physician for an exam.

Might throat sore: If you are prone to recurrent canker sores (recurrent aphthous stomatitis) they can also occur in the throat. Also recurrent aphthous can occur during times of stress such as getting a routine viral sore throat. Aphthous ulcers can be effectively treated with dental lasers.http://www.laserdentistbaltimore.com/mouth-ulcer-and-cold-sore-laser-treat
