Very unlikely: You are very, very unlikely to have lung cancer. Stop worrying about one episode of blood in spit. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

No: The blood in the mucous is common if you have cold and dry mucous membranes. Too young for lung cancer, and this isn't the symptom, enjoy your health
