Hi well come to Hcm.
You should immediately get done her X-Ray chest and blood count reports.
It may be conditions like Bronchitis,Bronchiactasis, tuberculosis, and at rimes
malignancy. If X-Ray chest non conclusive you got to submit her for CT scan
of chest. Thanks

Welcome to Healthcaremagic
It is a cause of concern. Chronic smoking is related to bronchitis, may predispose to tuberculosis and worse still malignancy. Immediately show to physician. Needs clinical evaluation and investigations.
Take care.
