Yes, I would be concerned. If you are having something go on inside the blood thinners can make you bleed internally. Make sure when you cough or go poo poo the stuff is not red or black or look like coffee grounds. Am not a doctor but have worked with them for a long time. Hope you are not on coumadin. I would just be very careful.

Once I'd finished it's left me with a very soar throat and I'm coughing up blood every now and again, it's not excessive amount. I've also noticed that the skin around my left eye had lots of dark red patches and they seem to be all over my face but less dense. I do feel slightly drowsy also.

Prior to being admitted I had a significant amount of blood I was given IVs and started treatment for TB Now again I was at work and started coughing up blood . They took X-rays and blood after about six hours later I was told that their was nothing wrong with me and the cause of my bleeding was due to to much coughing when I had not cough prior to this time . Right now I have not being able to go outside because its a little bit cold .
As the last poster said, it could be from a nasal issue. If you spot bright red blood, then its fresh blood from a nearby source. Dark blood is older blood and typically less worrysome. If it was a one time thing, there is little to worry about. If you are concerned, you may want to take your son to your general practioner for tests. This might help put you and your son's mind at ease.
This comes on by having a wheezing episode and then I begin coughing. This brings on the process of coughing up blood. It may happen several days in a row or may be months in between. The blood is bright red and may contain some mucus in it. The blood sample is about a quarter size and may happen 3 to 6 times in a row. I have had a lung spirometer test, sputum sample, a bronscopy, lung biopsy, multiple CAT scans, multiple chest x-rays, a PET scan and many many blood tests.
Smoking, alcohol use, gastritis, acidity, tumors of stomach and food pipe, bleeding gastric ulcer, cancer of stomach, erosion of lining of food pipe, bleeding veins at esophageal (food pipe) sphincters etc all cause vomiting of blood. This can be fresh red if coming from a place above the stomach. It can be brown or coffee colored if coming from the stomach.
I looked up some causes for coughing up blood. The ones that I put a dash next to are the ones I think that you should be concerned about. I also wrote down some diagnostic tests you should consider. If you haven't done ALL of them, then GO and get them done. Okay I promise to leave you alone now..hehe Good luck!!

I have now developed tinnitus also but this morning after getting up coughed up about 1 tablespoon of bright red blood. What on earth could it be, can anyone help? Should l go back to the docs with this new info or should l wait to see the ENT (probably about 6 weeks)?
I don't know if this is pertinent, but Advair caused such extreme coughing (almost incapacitating bronchitis) that I stopped using it. As for Spiriva, I find it extremely drying. I only use it every fourth day. On that regimen it helps. My lung health is actually much better and I am more comfortable since I gave up Advair, and my coughing is moderate. Advair also caused me to develop adrenal fatigue, which was quite dreadful, and I am still recovering from it.
Sounds like you may have pneumonia and coughing up red blood is a cardinal sign of strep penumonia, this is the strain that can kill you and is the one you get vaccinated against every 5 years. Given your age, if the dr. makes a diagnosis of pneumonia you will be hospitalized for treatment (its standard protocol for anyone over 60), your also going to need to get a chest xray. In the mean time it's a good idea to take a break from smoking pot. Don't play games here, if you really do have s.
I’m a 61 year old male & have smoking pot nearly every day for about 4 years. I have been wheezing for about 2 months. Last week I coughed up a large wad of very red blood & my tonsils felt swollen. I don’t have a cough. Then nothing until again this morning I coughed up a little blood mixed with spit. I have been under a lot of stress lately & have lost a dear pet. My family has a history of asthma. Any ideas of what I might have? Thank you.
My mother (61 years old and long time smoker) has developed a cronic cough that turned into coughing blood about four weeks ago - bright red blood. She went to the doctor and was given bronchitis medication. She recently had x-rays and CT scan which showed scarring on one lung and an unknown spot on the other. She is being sent for a scope in a week and biopsy. What else coudl this possibly be other than cancer? I don't know the size of spot.
My Husband had "CAT SCRATCH FEVER", a virus, of unknown origin, since he'd had no contact with CATS. He had been in the same room, with them, but no scratches. He had a staph or strep, added to the infection, when he was coughing blood, & had tarry poop. No more coughing blood or tarry poop, now. Don't let the problem, go on & on, for years. Use Docs, who are willing to go the "EXTRA MILES" to figure your 7 yr. olds' problem out.
After this last bout I was given antibiotics which have gotten rid of the yellow junk problem, but this morning when I had my usual cough, blood came up, bright red and fresh. I am concerned I may have some sort of nasal cancer as I am a recently quit (social) smoker of 20yrs. Is this something to worry about? I have also had a condition for 9 weeks called Labyrithitis which affects the inner ear causing dizziness, vertigo, hot flushes, fatigue and anxiety.
The causes could be infectious tuberculosis, excess coughing, infection, tumor, or a blood disorder. It is impossible and not worthwhile to speculate. Go to a physician and get a work-up and an in-person evaluation.
I saw what looked like red about the size of 3 periods at the end of a sentence on the toilet paper when I took it out of my ears. I don’t know if this was blood from him when he coughed and sneezed or if it was blood from me or even if it was blood for sure. Please can you answer my following questions Dr? 1) Was I at risk of HIV from this event? 2) Do I need an HIV test from the event I describe? Thank you Doctor.
If not cleared from the lungs quickly, blood could conceivably be orangish rather than bright red. The presence of a little blood in sputum, especially with harsh coughing, is not a cause for alarm. An abnormal chest x-ray and/or persistence of blood in the sputum after infection has resolved would be a strong indication for further diagnostic procedures, including bronchoscopy.
His face was red and scrunched during the coughing spell and his eyes were open when he was out. When he woke up after a few seconds, he acted like it never happened. He said he was just tired and was dreaming. Please give us some ideas.
My respiratory consultant says he is not looking at anything sinister and that the most likely cause is a blood vessel ruptured by coughing. It just seems too simple, that after a year of coughing, I suddenly produce blood and it is explained away so easily. Should I ask for further tests? I am 65 and have not smoked for 17 years. I am at my wits' end and don't know where to turn. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
