Re: Bloody Sputum
Bloody sputum caused by lung cancer is generally bright red. However, it is very hard to tell and I suugest you get it checked out and not take any chances. My wife had bloody sputum for months and our family doctor told us it was more than like due to pnuemonia she was supposedly recovering from. Now she has a late stage of lung caner. Our family doctor probably didn't think much about it because my wife never smoked, but if I knew then what I know now --- you better believe I would get a CT.
As I write, my has been admitted for bloody sputum (and anemia). Tommorow they are going to do a bronc to find the source of the bleeding, which is probably the large obstructive tumor in her left lung.
Do your self a favor my friend and get checked out, but don't worry yourself sick over. If there is one thing I learned, you must take responsibilty for you own health care -and for your family's. Let us know how things turn out and we will keep you in prayer.
