Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Coughing up of noodle like substance could be worms as ascariasis can reside in lungs, Take that substance to your doctor next time you cough and let them assess you. Take some anthelmintics for relief.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
