Hello, Mus. Coughing is one of the body's normal responses which is a form of defense from the lungs to remove foreign objects, germs or phlegm. Possible causes of cough with blood ranging from mild to severe disease. Some of the causes include:
Sores in the throat, for example due to a tight, prolonged dry cough, infection, inflammation, etc. Pneumonia (lung infection). Tuberculosis (TB). Chronic bronchitis (recurrent inflammation of the lungs). Bronchiectasis, namely lung inflammation that lasts a long time, causing permanent widening of the lung passages. Blood clotting disorders that can be caused by side effects of blood thinning drugs, blood disorders, etc. Injuries to the lungs, for example from an accident. Lung cancer. Throat cancer. Etc. To find the cause of cough with blood, it is best to go to the doctor for a complete examination and additional examinations if necessary, such as chest X-rays, blood tests, phlegm, etc. Performing an early examination will lead to faster treatment and a higher potential for recovery.
