Hi and thanks for the query,
What you describe requires an intense and detailed clinical assessment. The first thing to be considered is a chronic lung infection
. Pulmonary tuberculosis
must be excluded. A sputum examination, chest X rays and appropriate cultures must be done. Another very possible cause is a lung abscess
. A chest x ray, complete blood counts in search for elevated white blood cells counts shall be very very informative.
I suggest you meet your pulmonologist for a detailed evaluation and management. I think you need medical attention for an appropriate early diagnosis, management and prevention of complications.
thanks and best regards,
