If typical soreness: A typical sore throat can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if a sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol can temporarily lessen discomfort.

Not usually: There are some families who have increased rates of a variety of cancers, including papillary thyroid cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer. But having one does not cause an risk for another; instead inherited genes put a person at increased risk for both. A person with a history of thyroid cancer should be sure to get recommended mammograms and colon tests.

Yes if not improved: If you are still hurting without any real improvement or if it is feeling worse, then a MRI would be indicated unless the pain is mild and not affecting your life.

Situational symptoms: When your symptoms are so situational (distress occurs when you are in a particular place or circumstance but rarely occur other times) then stress must be entertained as a possibility (like fear of heights, ladders, flying, etc.) phobias are readily treatable, once you've ruled out medical problems that can prompt identical symptoms. See your doctor as to how to go about addressing this issue.
