Why Is There Blood When I Blow My Nose
ENT check: The nasal mucosa is a very vascular structure and blowing too hard may rupture a small blood vessel. Such bleeding can usually be treated by taking a piece of cotton baton, put it in ice and insert into the nostril and squeeze for about 3 minutes. However, you really need a specialist to look at your nasal lining and septum and make absolutely sure you have nothing more serious. ...Read more

I am having upper back pain that comes and go, and blood when i blow my nose. I do not have a cough. I am 25 and i don't smokecould I have lung cancer?
