Changes in my throat...reflux?

Hello- I'm 27 years old, and during the past several weeks, my throat feels like it has something in it. Several people have said my voice sounds hoarse. I did not pay much attention, until I tasted blood from my throat on Saturday after I coughed...I used a flashlight and observed a red/yellow circular bump and some of the skin next to my uvula actually has a hole in it!
Does this sound like a reflux issue? I have a history of crohns and barrets I have some degree of reflux, but never heartburn. I also use oxygen, which is drying. Additionally, I have a history or smoking and drinking.
I'm worried, though, because I also have a history of metastatic cancer, and there is a swollen node (? assuming its a node) behind my ear. Is this a real concern?
I'm seeing the ENT tomorrow, but I guess I'm hoping for reassurance. I'd say this has been developing slowly for a long time, but it may have been exacerbated last winter when I was intubated... to me, signs point to reflux...thoughts?
