7.CHRONIC cough with phlem for many years 4-5 years with blood tinge once in a while i DONT have lung cancer or anything wrong with my lungs except asthma is what they tell me i had an x-ray already and a breathing test. so i was thinking maybe due to some kind of stomach issues not sure but ive had acid reflux on and off with surgery i still have it sometimes has anyone heard of chronich phlem producing cough and what a cause might be???? PS: phlem is anywhere from white in color to brown NOT green please let me know any info would be a huge help!
