There are several factors that may be behind a hoarse voice. Most cases are caused by laryngitis, or the swelling of the vocal cords as a result of a viral infection like a cold. The majority of acute laryngitis cases resolve on their own within days or weeks, but it’s important to consult with a physician if:
- Your hoarse voice lingers for more than three weeks
- You notice a lump in your neck
- You don’t have a cold, flu, or sinus infection
- You cough up blood
- You have difficulty speaking, swallowing, or breathing
Voice hoarseness may also be caused by:
- Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)

- Vocal overuse
- A bacterial infection
