Common Questions and Answers about What does coughing blood mean


Avatar n tn Sorry, I wasn't sure where to post this. I am totally freaking out and my doctor is blowing me off with "don't worry yet". I had a ct scan with contrast which they want to repeat in 3 months. The findings: The lungs are well expanded. Mild diffuse interstitial prominence is noted. This is non-specific but could be related to chronic or acute process. At the lung apices, there are speculated parenchymal opacities which appear to be pleural based.
