Did you see your throat with the mirror? If not, you should look at it.
Never mind. In heavy cigarette smokers, there is a 5- to 25-fold increased risk of cancer compared with nonsmokers.
Heavy smokers are those who smoke greater than or equal to 25 or more cigarettes a day.
You are probably getting a viral infection (also known as a cold) which does "come out of nowhere" and cause a sore throat, stuffy sinues, and runny nose. Cancer symptoms develop very slowly over time and lung cancer doesn't typically cause a stuffy, pressured feeling in the head or a crusty nose.
Anything you inhaled is also unlikely to be the culprit. As for who to see, that would be your primary care provider who can quickly put your mind at ease.
It's strep throat and nothing you inhaled or ingested. Symptoms other than the throat and sinus ones are probably more the result of your anxiety disorder than anything physically wrong. It commonly takes several days for the antibiotic to kill all the strep germs. You should be feeling much better soon. You should not be concerned at all about this.
