A 40-year-old female asked:
Please help. Twice in two weeks pink blood was present in teeth while brushing. Nose gums or teeth were not bleeding. Could this be lung cancer? Clot?

Minor gum problem: This isn't how cancer or serious thrombosis presents, period. Get with your dentist and talk about a cleaning / preserving your gum health. You may just have flossed too hard, or have gotten a bit of gumline inflammation as happens if there's some plaque in the sulcus.
