I had a bad nosebleed yesterday and today i coughed up blood but i don't cough it up every time.  I have had a fever this past week what should I do?

See doctor...: The blood you coughed up could be related to the nose bleed. But, the fever makes acute bronchitis a likely diagnosis. Coughing up blood is called hemoptysis and the most common reason for it is bronchitis. You need to see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment because you may need antibiotic treatment. ...Read more

Hi could drinking two tablets 5 hours ago cause. Coughing up of blood and nose bleeds?

Hemoptysis: The answer, unless the tablets were poisonous, is no. Coughing up blood can be a serious sign of lung disease. Are you a smoker ? Get a chest x-ray. Have you had a URI for a week with lots of coughing? Get and x-ray but don't worry too much. Nose bleeds can be due to dry air, picking your nose of very high blood pressure among other thins. Without more symptoms I cannot be more specific. ...Read more

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

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

I never had nosebleeds before, but i just did, and choked and coughed up a huge blob of blood afterwards. I'm pregnant, and dizzy should I be worried?

Get it checked out: Nosebleeds, or epistaxis, is not uncommon in the winter due to the dry air and use of heat in the house and workplace. The issue with regard to pregnancy is that thrombocytopenia, or low platelet count, could be a reason for the nosebleed in someone who has never had one before. This should be excluded as a potential cause. ...Read more
