hi i had very bad chest and constant cough with yellow and green phlegm feel weak block noise so i wait over a week to see any improvement but nothing change so went to the gp so he done some test and said its only viral infection and it will go away by its own he refuse to give me a medication as i had feeling i got bad infection and ask him blood test and x-ray but he refuse so 3 weeks gone the black noise and coughing slow down but I start coughing blood with my phlegm its clear phlegm and like fresh blood init so i wait 3days then went to the gp again but see another1 and he sent me for x-ray then result came as emergency to the gp the same day so he put me on the course of antibiotics for a week then have to sent me to another x-ray after 3 weeks could it b infection or the first doc done the mistake by not giving me medication and that make it to turn to bleeding cough?

I wake up and spit up phlegm/thick saliva with dark red blood clots everyday. Nothing happens throughout the day but only in the morning after I wake up. I don't smoke nor do I drink, no cough/cold/fever or as such anything. Been happening since past 2 weeks now. Any help/suggestions? Really don't want to visit a doctor.

If a woman has HG in pregnancy and constant vomiting, could that also be a result of coughing blood with flem?

My mother recently has viral and she is on warfarin for lifelong and she got tinged blood when she coughs up, and after six months she got another viral and on and off tinged boos while she is coughing. All here st scan comes with no pe but with pulmonary nodules of size 4 mm in the right lobe then 3 month later we repeated the chest scan and there is another 3 mm pulmonary nodule in the left side and the doctor said maybe in the first scan was not show and now it shows ( the 3 mm nodule on the left lung. So is that coughing up blood ( tinged blood ) normal or can be lung cancer even the Ct scan can not show any cancer but I am still worry.

I have blood in sputum without coughing, no chest pain or any other pain. I don't smoke either. Stool has no blood. Blood pressure and pulse are normal. What could it be?

I woke up in the morning with a sore throat and I also felt like something was in my throat. I later started spitting phlegm with yellow/brownish with red. That same day at night I felt hot and had a headache. The back of my neck and my right shoulder blade hurt as well. Another thing, I sometimes feel like there is pressure on my throat.

I took my bloody mucus blob to the ER today when fever set in three days ago and then my long history of coughing and chest pain was not enough to prompt action i started coughing up blood and they hurt. The did blood work and chest xray. Even though i have fever still they sent me home and im to see family Dr. in two days. Why did they not even look at the blood i saved in a cup?
Sheree Hardin (1 year ago)
ER has no idea of what to do. They are not specialists in anything specific so they basically want you to find a certain doc for your symptoms-.-'Found that out the hard way lol. All they deal with are people on the verge of death. I went in for ovarian check and they had no clue what a CA 125 was haha...

Brilliant, informative video. Had a coughing fit the other day and unfortunately the large amount of flem i coughed up was blood.This lasted for about 45mins. Freaked me right out. I probably coughed up about 200ml of blood in total. not happened since thankfully. That was three days ago. Have had broncular problems as I have been smoking for 35 years. But, at the sametime I have had a chest infection. Either way like gambling lifes about odds. I think the chances now of being cancer are around 12 to one. Thanks again you at least gave me hope.

Angel Romero (3 years ago)
i just recently woke up with a aching body headache, and you know those symptoms of a cold or flu, influenza. when i woke up i noticed a small amount of dark blood spots in my phlegm. i had never had this symptom. it is not clear red and is not a lot, it is stringy dark and in my phlegm. should i be concerned or does this happen when you have a cold.influenza/etc. and yes im a smoker. please get back to me
Agnawstic (2 years ago)
