In brief: Always bad

Throat cancer is always bad.
Symptoms include hoarseness, a sore throat, coughing up blood, or a lump in the neck.

In brief: The throat includes

The top of the swallowing and breathing passages, depending on exactly where, trouble breathing or swallowing, change in voice quality or hoarseness.
Early diagnosis leads to best outcomes, and more choices: surgery, radiotherapy, alone or with chemotherapy. If you have it, something needs to be done.
