A voice problem is any problem affecting the production of an individual's voice from what is considered 'normal' for their age and sex. Voice problems can range from mild to severe and can have many different causes. A voice problem can affect the quality, pitch or volume of an individual's voice.
Common symptoms of voice problems include the voice sounding rough, harsh, breathy or quiet. Individuals with voice problems may also notice their voice problems getting worse over the day. Voice problems will often affect an individual's ability to communicate effectively.
