Without further testing if is difficult to say what could be causing your right lung pain for 2 months.  A chest x-ray would be the next step.  Assuming that your smokers cough means that you are smoking, now would be a good time to quit.  You may want to look at our Quit Smoking Topic Center at http://www.nationaljewish.org/topic/smoking_cessation.html for ways to help you to quit smoking.  Also check with your doctor for other quit smoking resources in your area.
