In brief: Get checked
Anything that lasts for this long should be evaluated by a health care professional.
Yes you could have throat cancer, but many other things might cause this. Please see your doctor.

In brief: Not necessarily
That kind of symptom could be as simple as post-nasal drip or acid reflux but you should definitely have it evaluated further since it has been consistent and is not normal.
