Get Evaluated!: You need to be evaluated asap - An Otolaryngologist ("Ear/Nose/ Throat") can evaluate and treat issues in this region. If you cannot see a specialist please see your family doctor or dentist. Given your description and the fact that you are a long term smoker this could be a cancer situation.
