Wet cough for months
I am a 44 year old female and a non smoker. For the last say 6 months I have a wet cough. There is no pain involved and I am not coughing all day. Do I have to go for a check up?
PS I am not overweight and to be honest only reasonably fit.

Mags, the best would be to have an x-ray a.s.a.p. It might be nothing, but it might also be a sign of something like tuberculosis or something even worse. Good luck.
