Not yet: It takes about 20+ years of smoking before Cancer shows up in your throat or in the lungs. This is high time to quit before lightening strokes and you may not have another opportunity to quit smoking in order to regain good healath.

Sounds a lot more like mucus build up in the back and draining down the pharynx. You may want to try some allergy meds and nose sprays. Not unusual to have small specks of blood with nasal irritation, dryness and allergies. Consult your PCP.
