Prob not: Best thing to do is see your doctor if your cough will not go away, doubt it is cancer

Cough.: While I wouldn’t think cancer first and foremost in this context, I do think you have something that requires more investigation as there may be a simple treatment option for you. This could just be allergies. Or maybe a bacterial infection.
