Blood Comes Out When Coughing And A Lump In The Throat?
I am a 43 year old woman. Not having a cough or fever. But one morning my throat seemed to have a lump … triggered me to cough a little but what came out was not phlegm but a clot of blackish red blood as big as my little finger nails. During the day a bad feeling in the throat makes me try to cough a little … back blood clots that came out this time up to 3 times. Uneasy feeling in the throat. R nSy about what it hurts. R nThank you in advance.
Hello, Tenri, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Coughing out when blood can cough can be caused by several possibilities, for example there is inflammation in the lungs (for example: bronchiectasis, tuberculosis infection, pneumonia, etc.), irritation or bleeding along the airway (from the nose, throat), bleeding in the mouth (for example: bleeding gums) mixed with saliva, use of blood-thinning drugs, etc.
A lump in the throat can be caused by inflammation in the throat, infection, to an increase in stomach acid.
To determine the cause of your condition, it is necessary to dig up information about the symptoms that are felt as well as physical and supporting examinations, such as sputum analysis, complete blood tests, X-rays, to endoscopy. Treatment depends on the cause.
Do not delay to check with the doctor first, coughing up blood repeatedly, or accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, coughing for more than 2 weeks, weakness, accidental weight loss, shortness of breath, wheezing breath, or fresh and large amount of fresh bleeding.
Avoid things that can trigger / worsen coughs, such as fried or fatty foods, spicy foods, smoking, and other smoke exposure. Drink enough water to relieve your lump.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
