Johns Hopkins Medicine answered
Hoarseness usually goes away on its own and is rarely a sign of a more serious condition. Causes include:
- Vocal cord nodules often form misuse of the voice
- Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, which are warty growths in the voice box
- Vocal cord paralysis
- Gastroesophageal reflux or acid reflux
