Get ultrasound of thyroid done to see the extent of growth,some times if the growth is very big it can have some pressure effects leading to discomfort, although cough as such is not very likely but can happen.
Get investigations for the cough ,XRAY Chest, blood count,pulmonary function test to rule out allergic component.
