Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Spitting out a small amount of blood is something that is vbery common particularly in a person who has been coughing for a couple of weeks.
should I be worried about the chest xray? results
When you cough, small blood vessels in the throat can be broken and can cause blood appearing in the spit.
So that is what has happened most likely in your case.
You should not be worried at all as far as I am concerned.
Your chest x ray will most likely be clean.
ty I have no other symptons for lung cancer , and the blood is only appearing in morning
but ive worked myself up so much worrying I cant concentrate on anything:(
I understand, I would not worry too much, however I would also like that you should have a complete blood workup done as well just to be sure it is okay particularly if you have not had a blood workup recently.
I understand, googling things can make you anxious particularly when you read up that one of the causes are cancer.
Cancer comes up pretty much on every symptom.
Yes I just wanted to make sure that your blood is not too thin.
Sometimes a low platelet count can also cause bleeding.
But that is just a routine blood work up that I am talking about.
Most likely your blood in spit is not something serious or anything to worry about and is related to your coughing.
