    I am male ,in my late sixties and have suffered from Asthma, for many years. Recently, for several months I have experienced severe sharp pain in my back in the area of my right lung. I cough up a thick yellow sputum and the pain is with me day and night. As a young man I worked with cement, asbestos and builders dust and did not wear a face mask.  My breathing capacity is just below normal.
