15 years old, suffering from throat cancer

hello, i am 15 years old and i m wondering if i have throat cancer . i have only smoked about 12 cigarettes. about 1 or 2 a week. when i cough, it hurts my throat and just starting today, my right ear has been hurting a little (on the inside of course. and i have had a history of ear infections) i sound like im losing my voice at the beginning and end of every sentence. it feels like there is a ball of spit/mucus deep down my throat that i can not seem to swallow/cough out. i am often feeling uneasy in my stomach and lightheaded if that has anything to do with it. is this throat cancer?
