For a year now I've been coughing up Clusters of these gel like balls from my lungs, do I worry?

I'm a smoker, and I do know the difference between the black flem and the other stuff. This past year however I've been coughing up these little balls that sometimes are soft sometimes hard. But they are like gel, and mostly it's one or two at a time usually when I clear my throat. Then there are times when Those big coughs catch you off guard and this giant Cluster of them fills my mouth! I've had my share of colds, chicken pox and other illnesses over my life. But at 39 with my first grandbaby only 3 months old, I'm wondering if it's more than just a smokers cough.

when I'm out of breath more often than not my chest feels like it's being squeezed from the inside, so I'm not able to breath in, and then it's coughing and I feel like I'm suffocating from the inside.

Please if anyone has some advise, let me know. I deal with it in silence for the benefit of my kids, Fear of "THAT" day keeps me awake at night.
