Cough for more than 1 month. Got worse in the past 10 days, more yellow phlegm, chest pain, low grade fever. Chest X-ray & blood mormal. What is it?

I am a 22 year old male with a 7 year history of smoking. I have had a pain in my upper right back and have coughed up blood streaked yellow phlegm.

See someone. Some BP MEDS cause cough. So need more info. Happy to do second opinion. ...Read more
