Whether or not the vocal disorder you're afflicted with is permanent or not will depend greatly on many mitigating factors.
Was the disorder caused by an accident to the vocal muscles? Is this related to your occupation? Is it possible that there is a muscular disease?
Certain professions require much more use of their voice than others, such as teachers, lawyers and actors.
Because of overuse, voice projection and little time for the vocal muscles to rest and recover, these individuals are more likely to suffer from a voice disorder.
