Hi,thanks for query.You are afraid about cancer as you know smoking can cause cancer,then don`t your think,you should quite smoking at once ? This could be due to dryness and ulceration of mucosa of throat and tongue due to smoking.the pain and soreness could be due to dryness and some form of vitamin deficiency also.Visit your doctor and get your self examined properly and take some supplements as per advise.I hope and wish you quit smoking,wishing you all the best for the same.
