It has been 2 months since i got the cold and the cold has already subsided , leaving behind a cough which usually gets worse in the night.

Currently , i am coughing out a thick yellow phlegm only during the day, especially about 2-3 hours after i wake up. It just keeps coming out constantly throughout the day and my throat feels irritated and feels like coughing but i have been controlling it. Also, when i try to exhale hard , there is a wheezing sound in my lungs , and if i exhale hard enough , more phlegm comes out.

During the night, i still have the same cough feeling, but its different because i do not have any phlegm coming out , just a dry cough. This has been ongoing for close to 2 months now.

I have seen doctor 3 times and had 2 courses of antibiotics but somehow it did not help. I have done an X-ray but have not received results yet. I am really worried that i may have chronic respiratory infection or lung cancer.

Anyone can please help me thanks!
