When you cough and there is muscous that is coughed up does this come from your lungs? If so there are black spots in the mucous. What is this? 3.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
1) as you have given up the smoking and if you maintain it for long time your lung is having functional recovery within 3-6 months, no additional process required to remove the smoke.

2) most of mucous of cough is come from upper respiratory tract, not from lung.
3) swallow the mucous is not having any benefit, so it is better to cough it and take treatment for cough.
