Maybe: There are a lot of reasons for a lot of phlegm in the throat. It could be a bacterial infection; it could be bronchitis from smoking; it could be allergies; it could be a sign of a lung disease like bronchiectasis. If this is a persistent problem, i would get checked out by your doctor or even a lung specialist.
