Mild chronic cough worries

The cough developed out of the blue about 3 months ago without any viral infections like the cold or flu which my coughs were usually attributed to. I had this similar cough experience once many years ago and was resolved using cortisteriod inhaler(I have asthma history) but unfortunately it doesnt' seem to help this time, tried various cough mixtures and even Omeprazole for acid reflux but no further improvments. I am sure it isn't post-nasal drip as I do not have any symptoms associated with it. The cough of course improved significantly as compared to day it started, however the recovery seem to have remained stagnant and at present, it feels like a slight discomfort or a mild inflammation somewhere near the Esophagus, most of the time it doesn't warrant a cough despite of the discomfort. Not sure if I need a scan to rule out lung cancer. Hope someone could shed some light on my condition and advice on what should I do next.

Thanks!
