Please can anyone help me. As i posted before I have this mucusy irritation where my ribs meet. I cough all the time to clear it. I have no infection. I have had asthma for years but dont recall this feeling being so bad, though I have had it before. Sometimes my cough is productive and sometimes dry and harsh. This I find weird. Please does anyone else with asthma have this sensation where I do and can cough be dry or wet it can change during day. Chest x ray was clear. I am afraid it is lung cancer as the cough can be dry and because of the irritated feeling. Where I feel it is in the hollow mainly between ribs and down middle chest. I have terrible health anxiety but I got this 3 weeks ago when I was happy.
