Hello dokAWhat causes white or green cough with phlegm and occur for years? Because my father is also a smoker, but he never wanted to stop his smoking hobby and he also never went to the doctor about a cough that had not healed for more than 10 years.

1 Answer:

Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com

Sputum cough on your father, which occurs prolonged may be caused by the following things:


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which is damage to the airways and lungs due to prolonged active cigarette consumption. Symptoms include chronic coughing of phlegm (chronic bronchitis) and spasms (emphysema)
Bronchiectasis, which is enlargement of the airways, one of which is due to smoking. Symptoms include prolonged phlegm cough
TB germ infection
Lung cancer
To determine the cause, your father should be examined first to a general practitioner. If necessary, the doctor will conduct a supporting examination such as an x-ray or refer your father to a pulmonary specialist for further tracking

As for what your father should do is:

Stop smoking
Eat foods high in protein, low in carbohydrates and fat
Limit strenuous physical activity
Use a mask
Dispose of phlegm in the right place, try in the open, exposed to the sun, and away from other people's exposure


That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
