I am a professional singer. I get a bit hoarse voice after I sing 3 songs at a stretch - even after doing my regular singing practise for 1 hour I get some hoarseness which subsides again after 20 minutes. Am I having some pathological problem with my vocal cords? How to get a remedy?

I would first recommend an evaluation by an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician to rule out the possibility that something structural/ functional is contributing to your symptoms. If all is determined to be well, you may be helped by seeking out advice from an experienced voice teacher.
Best of luck to you.
