Hello, and thank you for contacting us

We truly understand your concern with regard to your current condition. However, our views would only reflect based on the description that you have brought forth into the forum.

A health condition portrayed by prolonged coughing - which might also be followed by chest pain and shortness of breath - can be caused by:

  • Chronic viral or bacterial infection
  • Respiratory Distress Syndrome (i.e. COPD, Emfisema, Asthma)
  • Lung infection (i.e. Tuberculosis, Pneumonia)
  • Pulmonary edema biasanya akibat masalah jantung
  • Pleural Effusion (usually associated with Dengue Infection or cancer)
  • Lung cancer (usually associated with extreme weight loss & blood cough)
  • Cardiac abnormalities

In need of a second opinion? Our pulmonologist are here to help.

To know further with regards to your condition, or to be able to decide on which therapy best suited for your condition, an additional assessment must be done. With that being said we urged you to consult (other than your previous consultation place) with the nearest clinic or hospital in your area.
