In brief: Yes
If it's big enough, it can cause compressive symptoms and affect your voice.

It is also possible that this thyroid nodule may be pushing or invading a nerve (recurrent laryngeal nerve or external branch of superior laryngeal nerve) that controls your vocal cords. This can cause weakness or paralysis of your vocal cords leading to a change in your singing voice or speaking voice. If you have this concern, you should see an ear, nose, & throat (ENT) doctor).

In brief: RARELY
Due to cancer invading nerves to vocal cord but truly a rare occurence best look for other much more common causes.
