Probably not: But if you want to be certain, see your doctor for a good exam.

See an ENT: A horse voice can result from many causes.A good look at your vocal cords by an ENT can help define the probable cause. It could be something like a vocal cord nodule or chronic ge reflux. Treatment is more successful when you have the best data to design a plan.
