Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
White patch on the vocal cord can be fungal infection because of repeated use of steroid inhaler. Secondly, vocal nodule does not appear like a patch, it appears like a bubble popping out of the cords. Better to consult a good ENT specialist and get the things solved.
Take care
