hi well come to hcm,
Cough lasting for one month you shold consult your doctor, pain may be
due to pneumonitis,effusion, or tubercular patch.If lot of coughing is there it may be
due to muscle strech even, better you submit for X-ray chest. You have not mentioned
about associted things like Fever,appetite, smoking habbits etc.Thanks
