Breast Cancer/Cough


I know this is not about Cancer but I hop you can give some help because you are a Doctor.

A fue Years ago my Mom was told she has Pulmonary Hypertension and she is on something for it and is doing very very well now.

My Mom is now 68 Years Old and I am 43 Years Old.

When I was around 5 or 6 Years Old I remember my Mom always having these Big Long Coughing spells.

And when I was around 20 Years Old my Mom still had these Big Long Coughing spells.

Let me tell you what they are.

When my Mom would start to Cough it would be very very very Loud and Hard.

She would do mabe 3 Hard Coughs then stop for about 5 Sec. then start couing again and stop for 5 Sec.

And this would go on for I would say Hours.

As you can see this would make everybody start Fighting with her and she would never want help.

Well since I was 6 up till now and I am 43 my Mom may go maybe 4 Days then have her spells.

And when I was 20 something she would be ok at work till she came home around 5pm and start her Couughing.

And even if she stops for 30 Min. you know she would pick it up right away.

Now it is not that bad but she still has them.

What I want to know is can Very Strong Long Coughing make her get Pulmonary Hypertension?
