Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern but your complain is not correlate properly see the mucus can not be on the vocal cord it would be just your false impression, more over you did not mentioned the complain here also you described in different way here you said that "as if there is hole" this is totally nonspecific kind of complain in my opinion to clear the doubt better to go for ENT examination, hope this information helps you, have a nice day.

I have had this thick clump of mucus that constantly in my throat. I m assuming over my vocal chords. I m a teacher as well as a singer and I know I use my voice a lot, but I ve never stayed hoarse for weeks at a time. It seems like I can cough up whats on the left side of my throat but the right side doesnt budge. It feels like a bunch blankets are on top of my vocals
