Next step is....: Chronic cough with weight loss can be a tough condition to workup. Next you will likely need a bronchoalveolar lavage with culture and biopsy. You would need esophageal manometry as well as medication to suppress and potential postnasal drip. Cancer wouldn't present this way though fungal or autoimmune pulmonary issues are possible.
