Voice Hoarseness: At your age she would have to be a very heavy smoker and or a very hard drinker for you to have throat cancer that's what causes it and you'll have a very very hoarse weak voice. When it becomes advanced you even can have trouble swallowing and breathing with weight loss chances are someone your age does not have throat cancer.
