New to Voice Problems? Here are two facts:

1. Voice problems are different to speech problems.  Voice is the sound made by the larynx (voicebox).  What is done with that sound by the lips, tongue, etc... is speech.

2. Voice problems are not just about what you hear.  A hoarse, strained voice can have a very significant impact (imagine having a whisper for a voice... forever?).  However, when you add other symtoms that can include pain, breathlessness and swallowing problems, perhaps you start to get an idea of the challenges of a voice problem.
