Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs.

Pain in upper right back. Slight cough for 2 months. 2 xrays and bloods. All fine. Highly anxious now. Could I have lung cancer. ?
Stop worrying: I can't promise you don't have a tiny lung cancer.

Scared I've got lung cancer cough and cold for a while today coughed and there was a tiny speech of blood, after blew my nose and there was blood ther?

If you are a smoker in particular, I would suggest sputum cytologies. During a viral illness, your asthma may worsen, requiring an adjustment of your medications.
