If your voice has changed or you have become hoarse, it is important that you see your family doctor if this change persists after a few days, particularly if you have not been shouting/overusing your voice or if you have had a cold. 

The medical term dysphonia means a change in the voice, including hoarseness, and the similar term aphonia means complete loss of voice (usually reduction to a tiny whisper.)

It is absolutely essential to see your family doctor if you have been hoarse for longer than three weeks, particularly if you are or have been a smoker.
