My daughter had bilateral vocal cord nodules for 3 yrs and needed voice therapy. Turned out, in her case, they were aggravated by severe reflux we never knew she had because it never came up high enough into her mouth for her to feel it, yet it came up to the vocal cords and caused massive pain and cont'd nodules.
After 3 mos on Prevacid and a rescope, they went away completely and have never come back!
These can look rather ugly, but I have never seen one turn out to be cancer - particularly in a non-smoker. Even so, your plan is a smart. In the meantime, watch your diet, take your ant-acid medicine and be nice to your voice/throat. Good luck!
