Blood In The Sputum In The Morning
Joseph is a healthy 9 year old.He coughed up specks of blood in his sputum first thing this morning. What is the cause?
See Your Doctor: 9 yr old, "coughed specks blood this morning". It is important to determine if the blood was actually from the lungs vs. upper respiratory tract.

It is important to have your child checked to make this determination. See your doctor for correct diagnosis & treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
