In brief: Could be related.

Often during a cold our throats get irritated and sometimes swollen.
For sore throats, i first like to recommend warm salt-water gargles and over the counter meds like Ibuprofen and tylenol (acetaminophen). If you have a hard time swallowing or breathing, please contact your doctor!
