Thanks for posting your query.
According to the details you have provided you are most probably suffering from bronchitis or a lower lung problems and itself can cause chronic airway disorders causing white sticky phlegm and chest pain and has a risk of causing lung cancer.
Since you are also having difficulty in breathing you definitely need to consult a chest physician ( pulmonologist ) who can confirm the diagnosis after chest auscultation , X-rays , etc .Based on the findings he may start appropriate treatment or advise further investigational work up ( like lung function tests , CT scan of chest etc) .
Please do not worry as most of such lung disorders are treatable and gradually resolve if treated early .
As of now the treatment might include bronchodilator like salbutamol etc ( inhaled or oral ) with or without steroidal agents to improve lung function .
Also an antibiotic course ( azithromycin)might be started to prevent or treat lung infection .
So please do not worry and do consult your doctor as soon as feasible.
Hope I have answered your query.
Kindly accept my answer in case you have no further queries .
