Hello Melembru,
I read Your Problem.
Do not Be Penic.
Believe me You are not Suffering from Throat Cancer.
Throw away your worries. Be Relax and calm.

You Probably got Upper Respiratory Tract Infection after Common Cold episode.
You need to do is to follow few Instructions.
1) Avoid Cold Stuffs like Cold drinks, Ice creams etc.
2) Avoid Oily foods having more cheeze,butter& all.
3) Drink HOT breverage like Hot Coffee,Hot Tea, Hot Soup 3 times a day
4) Do Gargling with salt water 2-3 times a day as local remedy. You can Purchase Throat Gargles by Medical store with Your Doc Guidance.
5) Consult Your Doc again to treat Ur throat Infection & Ask him for Proper Antibiotics.

Ask me again if any queries.

With regards,
