Coughing blood streaked phlegm

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing blood streaked phlegm

coughing

How do doctors tell whether blood-streaked phlegm is from lungs or from stomach? If it is from stomach, what could the problems be? Could a barely-bleeding gum area the night before that appears to have stopped, be the source of the blood in phlegm? In my case, there is no coughing involved to get the phlegm out, I have not had a persistent cough. I just try to pull it up, and it seems to be emanating from the top of stomach area. Thank you.
I was told that I have broncitis, I just finished my medication for it, Im still coughing quite abit, and this evening i coughed up some gross green phlem and there was a tiny bit of blood streaked in there, is this normal or should I be concerned?
On the other hand if you are coughing up blood and not blood-streaked phlegm, you should be seen on an emergency basis. For blood to be found in the stool, it must either originate in your digestive tract, or be swallowed in large quantities from another source. You will need to be seen by a doctor without delay in order for the source of the bleeding to be found and treated. If the bleeding is severe this could be life threatening.
This may appear as blood streaked phlegm. However, you would want to be sure that your past lung cancer is not part of the problem. Please see your doctor to know what is causing the blood in the phlegm that you are coughing up.
I had told dr I had been coughing up blood for several days and they asked if it was streaked and I said yes. I saw a description on a web page using the description of looking like a partially scrambled egg and that is what it really looked like, not really streaked but kind of mixed. Now I have been on 500 mg Cipro for 4 of 7 days prescribed but still am coughing up same type of blood mixture. Am I just not allowing the medicine to work long enough or should I be contacting my doctor?
could that be a result of it? it is strange because i dont see blood streaked phlegm. it is like a small round phlegm ball with some blood in it. it happens sometimes if i sneeze to and usually just first thing in the morning. i am keeping a close eye on it and it isnt getting worse yet but my dr said if it dont go away in two weeks she will run more tests.
In the next phelm I spit out was just as bloody, the third time more clear phlegm but streaked with blood. I went to the doctors yesterday and he referred me for a ct scan of the chest, I have an appointment for it this Saturday Nov. 6, 2010. Most of yesterday I didnt notice any blood in the flem, but about 2am when I woke up coughing I ran to the bathroom and spit the flem out and it was all blood, a second time all blood since then mostly clear flem with a few streaks in it.

(this occurs frequently, usually at night) Phlegm / Mucus (infrequently streaked ever so slightly with blood. However this has been persistant.) Wheezing (This is very rare.

He must have quite a bit of inflammation to cough like he does. Does his doctor know about the blood? (Is it streaked in his phlegm or is it frank blood...if it is frank blood then issues other than inflammation need to be considered and warrants a call right away to his doc). I honestly think that he needs better control...maybe his doctor can refer him to an allergist as well, a pulmonologist wouldn't hurt either to get his asthma under control.
If you bring up phlegm that is yellow, green or streaked with blood, you will need to go back to the clinic and tell them as you may need an antibiotic or penicillin. Coughing is the body's natural response to get rid of irritants. Irritants can be bugs, viruses, dust particles, allergies. Keep drinking plenty of warm drinks (avoid milky drinks) Warmwater with honey and lemon is good. Make sure you stay hydrated. Get plenty of rest.
Hi again, well I get sore throats on and off, post nasal drip, and I cough up from the back of the throat , not the chest, thick disgusting small firm pieces of mucus that is dark yellow , can be greenish and/or blood streaked. The back of the throat can feel quite rough and sore first thing on some mornings until I am able to cough that filthy piece of mucus up from where ever it has decided to attach. Then my throat immediately feels relief. Pretty off eh?
I have been coughing a lot and wheezing, and I am coughing up a lot of very thick phlegm with brown and red streaks...I get tingling and numbness, only in my left leg, especially when I am having a bowel movement..I am really fatigued, get night sweats and have really itchy skin....I have been to so many doctors and I feel like they are just brushing me off becuase I am 22 years old, but there is something very wrong.....I have also lost a lot of weight, from 120 to 97 in 3 months...
I deliberately hack and cough to dislodge this brownish to greenish phlegm, which is sometimes streaked with blood, but can never seem to get it all up. The build-up worsens late in the day and at night. I sometimes awaken in the night and cough up lumps of the stuff. My first breath when I wake in the morning is almost always followed by coughing up a large amount of phlegm and saliva.

Wash off your hands with soap. The blood vessels on one side of the nose swell up with blood, on purpose, to close off that side of the nose to air. This gives the cilia in the closed nostril a chance to clean out all the pollution and mucus. When it’s clean, it opens up and the other side is closed to repeat the process. The things that swell up to close your nostrils are called turbinates. Keep this in mind when you are blowing your nose.

Holy, I think you should take another blood test for H. Pylori. I just got a positive blood test three days ago, after being negative 6 months ago. Tests are not always accurate, and there are false positives and false negatives. So it's best to do it again, just to make sure. Fecalbodyodor, it is interesting that those people associate their PATM with the treatment of H. pylori. In my case my PATM condition is certainly not caused by treating GERD because I just got a positive test.
