A coughing fit could be a result of allergies, a cold, or even just food or water going down the wrong pipe. However, if that cough never seems to let up or go away, it could be a sign of something more sinister and serious like lung cancer. “Cancer in the airway can irritate your throat and make you cough,” says Dr. Flores. “There’s something in there that’s not supposed to be there, so your body is trying to get rid of it.” Cancer can also produce mucus, which only exacerbates a cough and makes it worse.
