Red circle on the front of neck, sore throat. Reason, possibility of throat cancer?

Hi Dr, I have a red circle on the front of my neck . (located more below at the bottom curve next to the bottom end). I also have gotten a really bad sore throat recently. I m a 26 year old smoker, when I inhale smoke it also feels weird now when the smoke goes through. It s sore and sometimes feels like it slightly burns like a rash feeling. Is that some sign of throat cancer?
