Coughing blood not cancer

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing blood not cancer


Avatar n tn I told him that I was not coughing up blood nor had I been coughing up blood. My family doctor then stated to me that I would cough up blood and then it would be too late for me. I have trusted my family doctor for some years, but I felt this was a very negative statement by him to me. I have deeply researched COPD, try to remain encouraged and I felt this doctor was giving me an immediate death sentence. This has greatly upset me.
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 n tn I am told it comes from stones even n the kidney causing some irritation. HOwever the fact that you are coughing blood seems unrelated to me. Blood even with MSK, needs to have more serious things rulled out with a doctor.URO etc. Even if it is just an MSK thing,,, they need to amke sure it is not something more, esp. with the blood you are coughing up!!!
Avatar f tn (I smoke about 8-10 a day).Yesterday I did a huge cough and spat the resulting phlegm in the sink. It had blood in it. Not a large amount about 5p/dime size. The actual phlegm was clearish with a green/grey tinge. The blood was bright red. Needles to say, after reading everything online I am now scared witless! I am going to speak to my GP tomorrow. It has not happened since. Has this happened to anyone else and it be nothing scarey?
Avatar m tn I dont feel pain when I breather not easily winded no lumps not coughing. cough up phelgm at times but small amount and no blood or anything could it be that or something eles and im not wheezing either .
Avatar f tn It is possible that any number of his problems are reversible with proper treatment. While coughing up blood is ominous, it need not be a cancer or some other serious disease. It too may be treatable and reversible.
Avatar f tn does coughing and wheezing more {as asmatic anyway} have any bearings on colon cancer
Avatar n tn im coughing up blood every other day or so for a year now. it gets worse when i talk a lot . i have a have chest pains and dizziness after coughing up blood and have a shortness of breath what do u think it is ??
Avatar m tn For the last month I am sneezing up blood and coughing up blood(coughing up blood not sure if it is from nose), have headache all the way down the middle of the brain and when I swallow, also I am short of breath and wheezing, also have chest pain and back pain, right now I have itchy back. But, I had an x-ray 6 months ago that showed clear lung. I had 6 x-ray in the last year due to recurring chest pain. What is wrong with me.? Is it allergy or asthma?
Avatar m tn Two weeks ago, I had this strange cold, one day running nose, one day coughing, one day heavy muscus then coughing fits sometimes initiated by particular foods and sometimes no eating or cold air and night coughing fits( not every night) were more harsh with lots of phlegm and stomache gas and spitting out. I saw a doctor and prescribed Averin along with 3 other medicines-Lansoprazole, Tulobuterol tape, Cetirizine but with no apparent effect. What to do now?
Avatar n tn ) After approaching 30 days, the cough is much less frequent and chest tightness is relieved somehwhat- but not gone. Occasionally feels like I have just a "catch" in my throat. No other symptoms. I don't feel any stuffiness- perhaps a bit in the morning, but I haven't/don't feel sick and I remain in otherwise excellent health.
Avatar f tn If he's throwing up blood and coughing it up, he HAS to get in. How old is he? There's a lot of different things it can be, but this could be potentially life threatening and has to be diagnosed. He could be refusing treatment because of a fear of finding out and knowing something serious could be wrong.
Avatar m tn If there is a lot of blood, not just blood flecked mucous she needs to go to the hosipital. A doctor is really is the best to tell you what is going on with her. Take care.
206807 tn?1331936184 Never had an esophageal bleed but once those vessels burst it entails a lot more than just coughing up blood. As a rule those blood vessels just don't seal themselves back up and bleeding out can happen quickly. Did you see Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart? He was a bad alcoholic and towards the end the old boy was dying from the booze, p-issing himself, coughing up blood and on his way out. That was a pretty fair depiction of a raging alcoholic.
Avatar m tn Recently I am sneezing and coughing up blood, have headache all the way down the middle of the brain and when I swallow, also I am short of breath and wheezing, also have chest pain and back pain. But, I had an x-ray 6 months ago that showed clear lung. I had 6 x-ray in the last year due to recurring chest pain. What is wrong with me.?
349465 tn?1289081764 Teresa, I now have lung involvement and my sysptoms are wheezing not so much coughing, shortness of breath, some caughing up blood. I had 11 radiation treatments to shrink the tumors on my lungs and it seems to work for a couple of months but now the same symptoms have come back. I go to see a lung specialist on Friday.
514510 tn?1272718736 She has started spitting up blood and having sometimes a hard time to swallow. She has brought in hospice but we still do not know the stage. Can anyone give me an insight on what to expect. What people think her stage is or how bad she is. She has refused treatment. Any answers would be appreciated.
4121556 tn?1350428560 I am not in a position to make a judgement call regarding euthanasia. Only you, your family, and your regular veterinarian should be involved in that discussion. Regarding the coughing, the most common cause is a degeneration of the mitral valve within the heart. The veterinarian who sees your dog will be able to diagnose this via an exam and some xrays. The xrays will also help rule in or out cancer, parasites etc.
Avatar f tn Are these episodes of coughing up blood accompanied by any other symptoms? Do you have abdominal pain, do you ever have bloody stools? Gastrointestinal problems like ulcers can also be the cause but not likely given that it is only a small amount. Do you have nose bleeds? Pain in throat? I think with the ct scans someone is definitely on the right track. Be patient and try not to think the worst scenario. It could be something really simple.
394610 tn?1326725395 Read a reply on the PET scan thread that said a CT scan does not pick up everything.... sugar brings out somethings on a PET scan..... so, a "clean" CT scan might not mean really clear? But, what if white and red blood cell count was "perfect" - and CA 125 was normal (13) Does that help the case for clear? Thank you for any input!
