hello , U had severe cough since few weeks means is significant. apart from pain in right chest u dont had any symptoms . Thus it might be associated with Pneumonia , TB or simple effusion . U dont mentioned any associated symptoms , If u mention other symptoms thus it helps for diagnosis . U can consult doctor for chest x-ray and sputum examination to confirm or rule out the possibilities. ESR blood examination and tuberculin test helps in treatment to start proper treatment
