Blood in mucus lung cancer

Common Questions and Answers about Blood in mucus lung cancer


Avatar n tn This blood is surely not a sign of lung cancer, given your age, your trivial smoking history and the normal chest x-ray and CT scan. Blood in one's phlegm should never be ignored but you should not need any further testing beyond the imaging you have already had. And, it should not be assumed that the "speckle of blood" came from your lungs. The normal CT and x-ray suggest it didn't. It is just as likely to have originated in your nose, throat or sinuses.
Avatar n tn irritation of the throat from violent coughing, blood clot in the lung, bronchiectasis, bronchitis, cancer, cystic fibrosis, inflammation of the blood vessels in the lung, nosebleeds, pneumonia, tuberculosis or inhaling blood into the lungs. Are there any other signs or symptoms present? Chest x-ray, complete blood count and complete medical and physical examination is needed to help with the diagnosis.

Avatar f tn However, in this case, there is no mass in the lung at all, only something in the bone. It would be pretty unlikely for cancer in the lung to present in this manner. The question would be if the finding in the bone appears malignant. If this was the case, it would likely have been discussed with you. An abnormal bone island or cyst is not cancer, but due to its presence, it may produce pain. Discuss the nature of the shoulder finding with the doctor and make a plan as to what's next.

Avatar n tn Two years ago I was diagnosed with stage 1a lung cancer, treated by removal of my right middle lobe, no radiation or chemo. On a followup x-ray last week, the radiologist mentioned that there were changes (larger chest) indicating COPD is worsening. I am very active and don't smoke, age 51 female. The pulmonologist that saw me once for lung cancer two years ago said I was too healthy to be her patient. Should I be taking something to stop the progression of COPD ?

Avatar n tn s just flecks of blood it could be that your sinuses are irritated and/or very dry, Blowing your nose too hard can rupture the tiny blood vessels in your nose, drips down your throat and it gets coughed up with the stagnant mucus in the morning. Try a humidifier in your bedroom if your climate is dry, or use Ocean Spray during the day, wait a few minutes then blow your nose gently. If you're coughing up more than a half cup of blood see your doctor asap.
Avatar m tn Cancer has spread in the lung. Now blood is beginning to accumulate in his lung. We were told when blood starts to accumulate that is a sign he is in the final stages and we can expect a rapid decline going forward. Would someone shed some light on this for us? What should we expect?
Avatar f tn could it be anything other then cancer in my lung, my family has a history of lung cancer, and I quit smoking in 2001. could the pain in my butt be related to the nodule in my lung? could the kidney be affected? please tell me it's probably nothing more then a cyst.. I'm 54 years old and already went through the grind.. I'm a postive person, but still quite frightened at the prospect of having to go though it all again! I appreciate any responses ..
Avatar f tn One thing you have to bear in mind is that smoking give lung cancer and aspirin always make bleeding worse. so i think you should see an doctor more examination and never use aspirin while bleeding.

Avatar n tn This summer I had flem with blood in it. I got a chest x-ray, and CT done in July to rule out anything fatal. Everything came negative, lungs were perfectly normal. Soon after, I was diagnosed with cough variant asthma. I think I've always had asthma before but I just recently started taking pulmocort. I am 27, quit smoking a year and a half ago, only been smoking for 6 years, and only smoked between 2-8 cigarettes per day.
Avatar m tn Other rare but serious causes are esophageal cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer etc.What are the other symptoms you have been having? A clinical examination and work up like X-ray chest, blood counts and endoscopy may be needed. I sincerely hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
