Could it be throat cancer?

Hi! I am new to this site and need some advice. I am a music teacher that had nodules 20 years ago and has fought horseness alot. Last week I went for my yearly physical and my doctor noticed my change in voice. She also noticed some lymph nodes swollen alittle. I told her that I had had sore throats off and on and one over Thanksgiving. My family doctor didn't see any redness, but gave me an antibiotic anyway. To make a long story short, I went to an ENT the next day and they did a scope. No nodules, but they found 4 white spots near my vocal cords. They are treating me for three weeks for laryngopharyngeal reflux. She told me if in 3 weeks they will rescope and if things have not improved, they will biopsy. I have done alot of research and nothing on this relux shows white spots. Do I need to be concerned? I am not having a good feeling about any of this, but not taking me directly for the biopsy is a good sign right? Has anyone else been down this same road? Please respond. Do I need to be worried here? Thanks! Kelly
