Hi! My 6 year old daughter had a bronchoscopy done and the pulmonologist said he found viscous mucous in the bronchus.. Is this CF?

In brief: Viscous mucus

Patients with cystic fibrosis produce thick mucus, they have so many signs & symptoms, but if you are worried about it & his doctor is considering this possibility, he can be tested for it with a sweat chloride test.
Good luck.
