Maxillary sinus fracture is a dangerous injury. The “high attenuated collection” refers to the appearance of blood (in the sinus) on a scan, the source of the blood you are coughing-up.
You must have medical care for this injury, that could directly damage structures that are next to the sinuses, including your brain. The treatment will include surgery to correct the fracture and prevent further bleeding and antibiotics, to prevent/treat infection. Do not delay in getting medical care, from the physicians who ordered your CT Scan. This is not something that will heal itself.
