Discomfort in throat

I know that cancer is an extreme case, but this has been disturbing me. I caught a cold almost a week ago, which first started with discomfort in throat. Then the theist wasn't a problem, normal cold and cough, due to season change and probably the smog in Delhi. But this morning my throats started aching and has been aching till now. I smoke very rarely, once or twice in a couple of months. What are the chances that this could be cancer? When should I decide to go for a diagnosis. What else should I look out for?
