  • An issue with your vocal cords?? My daughter had growths on her vocal cords (non cancerous). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laryngeal_papillomatosis . as these grew, her voice became quieter and quieter over many months as it affected her ability to speak. It also affected the quality of her voice (lost its smoothness and went hoarse). You may want to consider seeing an ENT specialist

It could be any number of things, however, I would discuss with him/her the possibility of MND. A family member suffered with MND at the age of 70 and this was the first symptom. I would urge you to go in any case, because the earlier you are seen the more they can do, whatever your condition is, particularly if it is progressive.
