Coughing up blood is the spitting up of blood or bloody mucus from the lungs and throat (respiratory tract).
Hemoptysis is the medical term for coughing up blood from the respiratory tract.
Coughing up blood is not the same as bleeding from the mouth, throat, or gastrointestinal tract.
Blood that comes up with a cough often looks bubbly because it is mixed with air and mucus. It is usually bright red, although it may be rust-colored. Sometimes the mucus contains only streaks of blood.
A number of conditions, diseases, and medical tests may make you cough up blood. These include:
- Blood clot in the lung
- Breathing food or other material into the lungs (pulmonary aspiration)
- Tuberculosis and many other causes
Medicines that stop coughing (cough suppressants) may help if the problem comes from heavy coughing. These medicines may lead to airway blockages, so check with your doctor before using them.
Keep track of how long you cough up blood, and how much blood is mixed with the mucus. My suggestion - visit your healthcareprovider for a detailed checkup and medication if neccessary. Good luck
