Part 2 of 12: Cough
Cough That Won’t Quit
Be careful if the cough lasts longer than usual. When you catch a cold or have a respiratory infection the cough will be gone after week or two.
On the other hand persistent cough which doesn’t stop can be a sign of lung cancer. So if you cough for a longer period of time, with mucus or without, don’t think it is just a cold but go and visit your doctor who will check your lungs and you may need to have x-rays or some other tests.
