Waldenstrom's and coughing

A friend was recently diagnosed with Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia.   He has had a persistent chronic nonproductive cough for several years which is getting worse.    Doctors do not seem to be interested in his cough.  Could it be a symptom of Waldenstrom's ????

Apparently there is frequently pulmonary involvement in Waldenstrom's and in this particular case that I've cited there was Endobronchial involvement that caused coughing.
