In brief: Needs evaluation

This kind of problem needs a medical evaluation, it can be something as simple as a sore chest muscle from repetitive coughing, to a persistent infection in the space between the lung and chest wall ( the pleural space) called and empyema, which is potentially serious.
Other causes exist as well.
