Coughing Up Bright Red Blood Lung Cancer
I have had bronchitis 2 months ago and now pneumonia.High red blood cell count and high protein in the blood. Should I be screened for lung cancer?
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
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. You're a never-smoker, you're young, you have a "slight cough" (been checked for cough-variant asthma?), and most back pain never gets a hard diagnosis. Fretting about one of the least likely diagnoses is doing you no good. If you recognize this as unrealistic, your physician can help you address cancer phobia.

Had paid and dry cough in rt lung for 2.5 months. Had xrays & bloods done. All ok. Lft to be done in october. Could I have lung cancer. Very worried ?
Not likely: If you have a normal chest x-ray, then you are not likely to have lung cancer, at least not an obvious tumor which could explain your persistent cough. Yet if you cough persists, you need an ongoing medical evaluation and treatment to control it. Sometimes it can be a symptom of asthma or acid reflux. So go see your doctor again till the cause has been found and treated. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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?
Suggestions: Inflammation in the airway ( either upper or lower ) may be associated with small amounts of bleeding. If your nose is bleeding this can appear in the post nasal drainage. 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.

Further evaluation: If you are a smoker further evaluation with a ct scan of the chest may be indicated; you should also consider asking your physician for referral to a pulmonary specialist for evaluation of the persistent cough. On a good note- cancer is progressive so the longer the symptoms remain stable the less likely cancer is the cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
None : It is rare for early lung cancer to have symptoms at all. The vast majority of patients with symptoms unfortunately have advanced, incurable disease. There are data suggesting that screening may be of help in certain high risk populations but at the end, reducing risk by not participating in the consumption of tobacco products is the best you can do. Be healthy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
