This is likely a chronic tonsil infection or pharyngeal infection. You will likely need antibiotic treatment like augmentin or cephalexin. It is unlikely to be cancer. I would recommend you have this examined by your doctor as soon as possible. You may also need to check if you have acid reflux, it can be the cause of chronic throat irritation
