Throat soreness

For 3 - 4 days I am having a sore throat. Yesterday I also coughed blood. I smoke daily so I am afraid if its any early sign of cancer . I started smoking 5 months before and smokes 10 cigarettes avg. Recently reduced cigarette smoking to 4 - 5. What could be other causes for these symptoms?
