for around a week now i have been spitting blood in the mornings not alot of blood just a small amount, i dont cough it up, actually i dont cough at all. i have no lung pain or shortness of breath, i did smoke for 10 years but quit around 3-4months ago. as well as spitting up a little blood i noticed every morning my nose is a little stuffy and i have hardend bloody snot and a little blood in there. when i spit the blood i belive im pulling it from my nose to spit. please give me an idea of what this could be
I used to smoke and quit about 5 months ago. All of a sudden I had the worse mucous anyone could have. It was like gum in consistency and when I pulled it out of from nose to spit, I had blood too. You're probably just hurting the nasal passages. It if were anything serious, you would have bright red blood when you coughed. Not to mention, shortness of breath. Have your doctor do a chest xray anyway, it doesn't hurt and it relieved my worry. Good luck.
