Yes, a large hiatal hernia can cause a person to have a cough.  And, yes, there is the danger that a large hernia could impinge upon one’s lung and interfere with respiration.  A large hernia is likely to be associated with acid reflux or regurgitation that could also be the cause of the cough.

The treatment of a large hernia is surgical repair.  In the meantime, if you are having acid reflux, your doctor might be able to reduce it with the use of medicine.

Yours is a treatable condition.

Good luck.
