coughing

Avatar f tn Only every now and them I feel like I have mucus so when I cough a little bit of mucus and blood comes up and my throat burns for a bit. Did I cut my throat and just not realize it or is it something else?
Avatar m tn I went to the hospital a month ago, done a chest x ray again, it came clear, done colonoscopy, gastroscopy, and upper endoscopy which said my membrane is vulnerable with spotty bleeding at touch, but it didnt explain blood in mucus. So after that i went to a Sinus and nasopharynx MSCT scan. it showed that my left maxillary sinus is complety full of tissue, which was spreading to the nasopharynx and theres a mass 3cm large and 2.5 wide...they said CT didnt show a tumor or metastases.

Avatar f tn I also have been coughing up some blood through mucus occasionally. You are probably right about it being an infection. I will definitely see a doctor in two days as I am 14 and my parents are working tomorrow. Also I am willing to try the steam inhalation. However if you think it is more urgent feel free to let me know. My symptoms have gotten worse and it is getting harder to breathe. Thank you for all your help.

Avatar n tn Hi, Continuous cough can make small cuts inside an irritated throat and sometimes little blood can come out along with mucus. You should control the cough with some cough syrup and the blocked nose can be easily cleared by inhaling medicinal vapours like Vicks VapoRub.
Avatar n tn Well, you definitely need a work-up by a pulmonary specialist. That being said, coughing up blood maybe very serious, and then again may not be very serious, so don't think you necessarily have a fatal illness. There are many possibilities.
Avatar n tn How long this has been going on for? Also do you smoke? Is the blood present as a pink mucus or as diluted blood (ie with saliva)? Do you have trouble swallowing large amounts of food? Regardless of the answers to the above questions, if you are coughing up blood for more than a week, it must be examined, a simple chest X-Ray and bloodwork would rule out anything serious.
Avatar n tn And the next day, I started coughing up small amounts of blood, sometimes combined with mucus, sometimes just blood clots, the blood seemed dark, not pink, and I didn't cough blood all the time, I would cough some blood, then it stopped, and maybe much later that day, or the next day, some more blood..
Avatar m tn The other possibility is that you are coughing up blood. This can be due to bronchitis or pneumonia, lung cancers (especially in smokers), tuberculosis, bronchiectasis, pulmonary embolism, or fungal and other infections. Discuss these possibilities with your doctor. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
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.
Avatar f tn THen i was having like an orange color diarrhea, but my stomach feels fine now--still diarrhea in mornings..orangy. and the last two days I have been coughing up a small amount of blood. today i blew my nose there was blood there too. I am not coughing that much. I only cough if I feel the mucus in my throat--but no trouble breathing, no pain, ..I am a nervous wreck about the blood though,,should i go to emergency room..its sunday...I will call my dr tomorrow.
Avatar n tn i can taste infection when i swallow and i keep coughing up mucus that has blood in it, what does blood in my mucus mean?
Avatar f tn She is not coughing, and there is no mucus mixed with the blood. I took her to her pediatrician he referred me to an ENT, the ENT referred me to gastro. specialist. her lungs and sinuses are clear. today they will do a CAT scan. if they can not find a source for the blood that will put her to sleep and each specialist will take a deeper look.
Avatar m tn Hemoptysis or coughing up blood could occur with tuberculosis. The other causes could be due to lung tumors, bleeding disorders or due to side effects of medications. The other causes for long term cough besides asthma are GERD and post nasal drip from allergies. GERD is gastro esophageal reflux disease where the stomach acids come back into the esophagus and spill into the wind pipe causing cough. Treatment with antacids will help neutralize the acids.
663213 tn?1225070222 In 2003 I had a lesion on my left lung. It even had fingers growing from it. I went through chest xray, that's where they found it, then CT Scan and then a pet scan because they couldn't tell for sure if it was malignant or not. Even with a pet scan they couldn't tell. But, was having trouble breathing, even coughing up blood and pain in chest and in back.
Avatar f tn I can deal with the wheezing, but 3 times now over the past 2 months I’ve started coughing hard and pulled up a thick, brown worm/slug like hard mucus that’s about 1.5 inches long and fairly thick. Directly after, I end up coughing up a small amount of orangish “regular” mucus. Otherwise, I haven’t coughed anything else up at all. Anyone know what this is? I can’t find anything online.
Avatar n tn For the past 4 years I have been coughing up clear jelly like Mucus Balls. I have been a smoker for 8 years, and I have Asthma. I wake up in the morning and in the middle of the night coughing up a lot of the little mucus balls. It happens a little bit through out the day. Sometimes they are balls and sometimes they are like a hair, but made of mucus. I am very scared and do not have health insurance. I am 25, and thought I was pretty healthy. Please someone, HELP!
Avatar n tn 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 .
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.
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.
937826 tn?1261333879 I have another questions I have been doing alot of coughing been coughing up alot of plehm but for the past half hour I have been coughing up blood not a smear of blood but a half dollar size amount of blood each time should I worry about this.
Avatar n tn Probably best to just see a doctor before purchasing a body scan. coughing up blood is not normal and requires evaluation. You will have to use your own judgement on how bad the situation is and as to whether she needs to be seen in an ER this weekend.
782115 tn?1245684075 You are right to be concerned about the blood in your boyfriend’s sputum. Coughing up blood is definitely abnormal, under any circumstance. Given his age and long smoking history, the blood was probably due to his having chronic bronchitis. If so, that would be serious now and, even more so, later in life. This blood should be considered serious and, at a minimum, he should see his doctor and have a chest x-ray.
