Pain: An inflamed vocal fold is almost always caused by a virus following an upper respiratory infection, such as a sore throat, cough or nasal drainage. Usually both vocal folds are inflamed and that usually produces hoarseness and certainly pain can be present. The pain would be located behind the thyroid cartilage (adam's apple). A diagnosis is necessary by an ENT doctor.
