What medical conditions can make you “lose your voice” or “talk raspy”?

Can’t figure it out. Just started about 3 days ago. Think might be a cold cause I did have runny nose and cough?? Do you think it could be lung cancer? I know people with lung cancer talk raspy.

    A cold (you did say you have a runny nose and cough) or an allergy can cause you to "lose your voice" and "talk raspy". Sometimes,  it can happen just from sleeping with your mouth open and breathing through your mouth.

     I do NOT think you have lung cancer. Lung cancer wouldn't make you "lose your voice" or talk "raspy" - not until the cancer was VERY FAR advanced.

    Stupidity.  The same kind that causes children to post moronic questions in the cancer section.

    Nearly all the questions you post are childish chat and nonsense.  Doesn't it bother you to only be known as an idiot?

    Laryngitis or a sore throat can all make you talk raspy for a short while. I think it is a bit paranoid of you to jump to the conclusion that you might have throat cancer. It's most likely a cold with a mild sore throat. Drink more fluids and get some extra rest and gargle with warm salt water and you'll be fine in a few days.

    Laryngitis... which is caused by the same virus that causes croup, so it also causes cold symptoms.  Any common cold can also cause a raspy voice.  Tonsillitis or other throat infections and acid reflux can also cause a raspy voice.  Not sure why you would think it's related to cancer.

    Most of us get a raspy voice with a cold.

    Cancer ??? Get real.
