Hi. I understand your concerns. You may be having asthma. Asthma is a chronic allergic problem causing cough, breathlessness wheeze etc. You will need to undergo pulmonary function test which is needed for diagnosis as well as to assess severity of disease based on which treatment can be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

Breathlessness can be due to heart or lungs or both. Get x ray chest, ecg, blood for cbc, sugar, lipids and get back here with reports. Halter test can wait for now, can be done later if needed.

If a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusitis and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusitis. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopically. Everything is explained in this, I hope this will benefit you.

You maybe suffering from viral or allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription.

Stage 4 lung cancer is usually considered incurable. But a subpopulation of patients may still enjoy a favorable outcome. However it depends on number of factors. These include histology, performance status of patient, presence of egfr mutations (much common in nonsmoker female asian- favorable outcome), site of distant metastasis (brain metastasis worse).
