Nose Bleed And Coughing Up Blood
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.

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.

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

I was working today and our store is super cold. I was blowing my nose because I'm already sick and there was blood. Why did I get a nose bleed?
Cold response: Your nose functions to warm the air you breathe before it reaches the lungs. When the air is colder, the nasal vessels become dilated to improve your ability to do this. That also tends to send other fluids into the soft tissues of the nose, leading to increased secretion, runniness. With dilated superficial blood vessels and the trauma of blowing, you get epistaxis, a fancy word for a bloody nose! ...Read more
