phlegm with blood
Hi,

I've been expriencing with pain in back nearly the right lung and sometimes i can't breath well when that pains came. I start to feel like this since September 2006 and that time i was working in a company which we are prone to radiotion and my contract thier is 3 years from Dec.03 to 06 Dec. By Nov. 2006 i could see a tiny blood in my phlegm when i do a very hard cough then its happening again by May 2007 a tiny blood in my Phlegm and so by Sept. 2007 as it is happen again i decided to go the doctor and check me she said im physically fit so we proceed to X-ray test and thier she told that i have some infection with my right lung so she gave me medicine for it and its really gone. As of Febuary 2008 suddenly my throath is hurt then a phlegm again and this time its really like more blood together with the Phlegm... I just wonder why this could happen again? anybody could give a comment?... i never smoke... Thanks..

Hi,
It would best to have yourself examined again. It would be even better if you could have the previous X-ray compared with a new one to see if there has been any change.

Some of the considerations would indeed be infection. Some of them tend to be have a chronic course, such as tuberculosis. Part of the diagnosis here would require sputum examination. Other considerations would be a genetic predisposition to degeneration of normal lung such as cystic fibrosis.

Of course, other systems may be involved - such as the throat and the stomach. Bleeding may also actually start from the nose and drip - irritating the throat and it mixes with the spit.

Let me reiterate the importance of seeing a doctor ASAP.

Please see a pulmonologist, asap.  Blood in the phlegm, chronic cough, weight loss, pain referred to the back, are just some of the symptoms of Lung cancer.  You need a CT scan since very tiny, and hence curable/exciseable lesions, will not show up on an x-ray.  Do not delay since early malignant lesions are much surviveable than late findings.

Oh, yes, non-smoking women comprise one in three lung cancer findings, and non-smoking women, not even a 2nd-hand smoke exposure, with lung cancer is on the rise.
