Blood Appears When Coughing?
Good afternoon Dr. I want to ask. Why is my mother not coughing but clearing her throat but bleeding a little. When checking the lab they said the results were negative. Is that okay? And what medicine works, so that no more blood comes out? Thank you.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The presence of blood when coughing, vomiting, or even just clearing one's throat indicates bleeding at a location in the person's respiratory tract or digestive tract. This condition can be based on:
Tuberculosis infection Rupture of esophageal varices Injuries to the esophagus Bleeding to the gums Blood clotting abnormalities Side effects blood thinning drugs Lung cancer
When your mother declares a negative result, it is most likely because she underwent a tuberculosis test. But as you can see, there are other possibilities besides tubeerculosis. For this reason, if your mother complains about bleeding when the throat clears, check her condition with a pulmonary doctor or internist for further examination, and may use other investigations such as blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound, or inserting a camera tube into the body. . This is important because drugs to stop bleeding cannot be obtained freely without a doctor's prescription.
Meanwhile, avoid your mother from dust, pollution, cigarette smoke, increase consumption of warm drinks, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
