Whenver I blow my nose there's droplets of blood and bloody mucus in the tissue. Is this normal? Could it be a sign of infection or cancer?
Probably not: Especially in dry winter air, some blood when you blow your nose can be normal. If this is unusual for you, and if you have other symptoms (congestion, fatigue, drainage, etc.), it could be a symptom of sinus infection. It would be very rare for this symptom to mean you have cancer. A simple treatment would be to start moisturizing with saline spray and a little vaseline periodically. ...Read more
My nose is congested and when I blow my nose there's green mucus and recently there was some blood, I don't have a fever and I feel fine. What is this
Why would I have blood when I blow my nose? Or when I cough up mucus there is sometimes blood as well? I do not have a fever.
Bloody nose: Nasal tissue is thin and rich in blood vessels. It is highly sensitive to humidity and a lack of it dries out, often with forced air heating in cold weather. There will be nasal blood with blowing, spotty not copious. Some blood may be aspirated from the nose into secretions which run back into the nasopharynx and then coughed up. IF, however, blood is consistently coughed, further exam is best. ...Read more
For a little over a week my nose has been stuffed up, and whenever I blow my nose to clear it up, it's a mixture of blood and mucus. This is only happening in one nostril. Is this a nasal inflammation or something else?
Nasal drainage: A runny nose is common with any cold. However, if there is bleeding, your nose is likely dry and you may be blowing your nose too forcefully. You are better off using a saline rinse when you feel like blowing your nose and applying a saline based gel to humidify the nose. If the symptoms persist, I recommend you see a physician. ...Read more

Sometimes I suck mucus from my nose into my mouth and there is blood, or blow my nose and there is blood. Both small amounts. Should I be concerned?

I'm not breathing right throughout the night. I wake up and blow my nose and there is blood in the mucus every morning. Can allergies cause this?
Yes, allergies can!:
allergies can cause nose-bleeds because of congestion of the membrane of the nose. However, more often we find that use of decongestants is associated with dryness and separation of cells lining the nose and cause nose bleeds. Use of medications such as Ibuprofen for relief of symptoms is another frequent cause for nose bleeds. Use of humidifiers may help to relieve dryness. ...Read more
When I blow my nose, the mucous is mixed with blood. Does this mean that my sinuses are inflamed and the source of the blood? Nose not the source.
Dry nose: This time of year it probably means your nose is dry. You can't know the nose is not the source of the blood, even if an ENT used a scope in your nose to look. If you're on oxygen, the nose is almost certainly the source. Use a saline nasal gel spray to help fight dryness, and humidify your oxygen if not already. Don't blow your nose vigorously. Try using a netipot or sinus rinse bottle. ...Read more

Unrelated: I'd doubt that your current symptoms are related to fluticasone whether shaken or stirred. It appears that you may have developed a sinus infection.
