Lung Cancer unlikely: You are too young to have lung Cancer. I would advise you to follow up with your doctor as to how he/she should monitor you further. It will partly depend on your future symptoms. If there is any more coughing with blood , then additional testing would be necessary. otherwise you should do fine. But do not smoke!

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
