Ongoing Cough

I finished my twelve session radiotherapy about six weeks ago for Non Hodgkins Lymphoma on apex of left lung, and still have a dry cough which sounds quite intrusive at times - Other than that all the other side effects seem to have gone. I don’t cough all the time perhaps three or four times a day but it can seem quite violent

Is it normal to still have this cough after six weeks? 

Thanks in advance 

  • Hi again  having talked with others who have had the same treatment for the same NHL presentation a prolonged cough can happen....... sometimes for months.

    Make sure you are talking with your clinical team and they are checking you out.
