How is the symptom diagnosed?

The role of the healthcare provider is to help a person figure out why he or she is coughing. The healthcare provider will start with a medical history and physical exam. This may be all that is needed to diagnose the cause.

The healthcare provider may order blood tests or a chest X-ray. Lung function tests can help to diagnose asthma or emphysema
