Hi. I have a  brain tumor and i just now had a nose bleed and coughed up blood. What do i do?

Epistaxis: Unless you know something I don't, nose bleed is not related to brain tumor. Nose bleeds are common in winter or with irritation due to colds. Sometimes blood runs down back of throat and is coughed up. Should stop when bleeding stops. Use cool compress and rest. If you have afrin (oxymetazoline) nasal spray put a few squirts up the nostril. This works very well. ...Read more

My friend gets random nose bleeds and coughs up blood  randomly as well is that a sign of some kind of cancer?

Nose bleeds: I'm going to resume that your 'friend' is near to your age. Even if they are twice as old I would think cancer is NOT the most likely diagnosis. The most benign possibility is friable nasal tissue that bleeds chronically (and he could cough that as well). More seriously, they may have abnormal blood coagulation for many reasons. See a doc for evaluation. ...Read more

Bloody nose: She is coughing up blood which she has aspirated from her nose. Stop the bleeding in her nose with compression, then apply saline gel to her nostrils. The bleeding is due to dryness in her nasal passages which have eroded her small nasal blood vessels causing the bleeding. Use a vaporizer at night for moisture. ...Read more

What can I do if my nose has been bleeding and I've been coughing up blood. What is it?

What can I do if my nose has been bleeding and I've been coughing up blood. What is it?

Various things: Nosebleeds can occur from any part of the nose. In children, 90% of nose bleeds occur in front near the nostrils, which is why pinching the nose helps stop it, since pressure is applied. In adults, it can also be posteriorly, so pinching helps in fewer cases. Lean head forward, not backward, so you do not swallow the blood. May need scope to evaluate for nasal mass and blood work to check if ok. ...Read more

May be related: If she had the nose bleed before she coughed then the blood could have come from the nosebleed. If she has no lung problems, no fever and no other medical conditions then coughing up blood is not common in children and mostly related to bleeding in the nose or throat- if concerned it is always best to be seen by your doctor! ...Read more
