Can a lung nodule cause chronic coughing?

Can a nodule grow big enough in 6 months to cause chronic coughing? I know 6 months ago when I was first diagnosed it was only 4mm but I m worried that this cough is something more. It started as Bronchitis but is still here and my lungs are clear and my x-ray came back clear. I feel like I have something stuck in my throat and ant extra activity (even just talking) causes me to cough, sometimes so bad I have a hard time breathing. My doctors believe its my asthma but I breath just fine. I ve rarely ever had and issue with my asthma over the last 20 years and now all the sudden I cant stop coughing. Please some insight!

if the nodule is very close to the large airway it could well cause severe coughs...

avoid allergic materials and take some antiallergic to reduce your symptoms1
