  • most chronic cough is caused by p.n.d.a subsidiary cause is g.e.r.d.smoking is a common but not necessary underlying cause of both.otherwise it is infected sinuses and hiatus hernia respectively.both are so common asto be regarded as normal.lungs can take four months to recover from each. good luck..

  • Dear unregistered, Where did the docor find spots? If spots showed up on a CT scan I would insist on a PET scan. That is the latest state of the art diagnostic tool. If the spots are cancer then they will glow redish. If your insurance will not allow a PET scan the next best bet would be an MRI. Do not allow this doctor to pass over the spots. How can he know what they are. Take charge of your own medical care. Doctors are not as intelligent as they would like us to think. I would find a doctor that is a member of The American College of Advancement in Medicine. Make sure the doctor is an MD with additional training in alternative medicine. visit my son's website: bradkimball.com
