Yes: This is more of a concern for women than men. Most infections come from the external world being carried in through the genitalia. Thankfully a kidney infection is often preceded by a bladder infection which has symptoms of pain and urgency of urination. There can be a small or a large amount of time before a kidney infection results. Treating a bladder infection can prevent this.

Not likely: Chest pain has so many more common causes such as GERD or coronary artery disease. Pulmonary fibrosis is going to present more with feeling short of breath with exertion because less and less of the lung tissue is available for transfer of oxygen to the blood.

No: Doctors have a saying, "if you are standing on a plain in colorado and you hear hoof beats, dont turn around expecting to see zebras." there are so many other conditions which are more common that i would suspect to cause a cough. Infections like colds and bronchitis when coughing for a week to a month. Asthma or chronic bronchitis when months to years. Others can be found with xrays etc.
