Hi and thanks for the query,
There are three main conditions to be evaluated for and excluded under these circumstances. Pulmonary Tuberculosis
, a tumor due to past history of smoking and lymph nodes and chronic bronchitis
. A chest X ray, cytology of the phlegm, firoscopy and lymph node biopsy
, based on other indications and findings that shall be seen on a clinical evaluation should give a good orientation with respect to diagnosis and management. History of fever, coughing for more than 3 weeks, recent travel, weight loss
and night sweats
might be interesting to know about.
Booking an appointment with a pulmonologist could be a brilliant idea. Thanks and kind regards.
