HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern if the symptoms of cough is chronic and long standing then in my opinion this need to be investigated for underlying etiology and the I would suggest to get done the x-ray of chest and sputum examination for some mycobacterium, hope this information helps you take care and have a nice day.
