In brief: Bloody Sputum

I am not a fan of blood in sputum.
Do you smoke? Are you dropping weight? How old are you? It could be an infection or it could be worse. It needs to be investigated further. Could be a simple bleeding sinus or it could be worse. I would check back with a doctor to find out what is going on. The blood and shortness of breath bother me...Check it out.
