I get the same thing in the spring and it's from allergies. I always freak out since I smoked for so many years, but come June, it goes away. If you don't smoke, then I wouldn't worry about but, I would look into it. If you do smoke or were a smoker, then I'd look into it further. If you'r doctor doesn't give you a satifactory answer, go to another. A chest xray would be a good first step and is inexpensive. I'd take a look at my throat as well, A good dental exam, as they are trained in oral cancers and docs usually don't look pay that much attention to your mouth.
I went through a period of hoarseness, I was always hoarse, and of course I worried that it was cancer. I went to an ENT doc, and he saw scar tissue on my vocal cords. The antibiotics and steroids did not resolve the problem, so I had surgery to remove the scar tissue. I was not able to speak for about 3 wks after the procedure, that was hard, especially with 2 small children! But the hoarseness was gone, and has never come back. That was in 1992.
Have you seen an ENT specialist? I hope you get this figured out, I know how frightening it can be.
