The Cause Of Coughing Up Blood Even Though The Sputum Negative TB Test Results?

Hello doctor, I’m Rey want to ask whether coughing up blood can use an inhaler. One more problem is why still coughing up blood even though the sputum test has been negative tb. Please explain doctor. Thanks.

1 Answer:

Good evening Rey, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of coughing up blood or hemoptysis is a condition when someone coughs and there is blood on the sputum. There are various sources of bleeding in coughing up blood, can be from the nose, throat, windpipe, also the lungs. Among the several diseases that have symptoms of bloody cough are:

Pulmonary edema
Pulmonary embolism
Chest injury
Lung cancer
Bronchitis
Lung infection or pneumonia

Tuberculosis
Bronchiectasis

So regarding your question, it's only natural that someone coughs up blood even though the TB test is negative. Because, although coughing up blood is often associated with TB, not all blood coughs arise from TB disease, there are also other diseases as we mentioned above.


Therefore we recommend that if you experience a coughing up of blood, check with your pulmonary doctor for further examination. Your doctor will do a history, physical examination as well as possible support in the form of x-rays and blood tests to determine the best treatment. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.


Meanwhile do not need to worry, get enough rest, avoid exposure to cigarette smoke and pollution, multiply the consumption of warm water and warm food, and consult a doctor immediately. As for the inhaler, no problem to use, instead it is recommended if it can provide relief in your breathing. So, hopefully answering your question.
