Possible throat cancer

Hey I'm a 17 year old male. I have been chewing tobacco for 4 years now I just noticed a pea sized unmovable lump above my Adams apple and I am worried it could be cancer. There is no pain but sometimes my neck just feels weird. I cough up a lot of phlegm and have a sore throat that comes and goes. Any ideas or advice would be great. Thanks.
