Doctor can evaluate: A person who has a cough producing mucus should see a doctor. The doctor can evaluate to see if there is allergies, asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, or perhaps another problem in the throat or chest. Problems can be more serious if the person is a smoker or has other health problems. Smoking is a major risk factor for several lung diseases, including cancer.
