Phlegm Buildup And Coughing With Blood Has Been Nearly 6 Months Old?
Hello Asep Permana, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
A long cough accompanied by bleeding can be caused by a variety of causes, here are some of them:
Tuberculosis infection Bronchitis Bronchiectasis Cystic fibrosis Lung cancer
The diseases above can provide a description of symptoms similar to what you are experiencing. To be sure, it's a good idea to see a doctor directly. Your doctor can further inquire about your previous medical history, perform a physical examination, as well as supporting examinations such as blood tests, sputum (sputum) examination, chest x-rays, bronchoscopy, or CT scans. Management for each of the diseases mentioned above can be different, therefore definite diagnosis is very important to do first.
The condition of coughing up blood, especially if there is a lot of blood coming out, can be dangerous if not treated immediately. Therefore, the best thing you can do right now is to see a doctor. For the time being, you should try to hold back from coughing too hard and not to talk too much so as not to trigger a cough. If you are coughing, position yourself in a sitting position or half bent down (don't lie down) so that blood does not enter the lungs.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
