What is the likelihood of having lung cancer with a clear chest xray and normal blood work? Only real symptom is SOB but clear Echo 15 months ago
Not likely at 32. At 32, it's very unlikely that you have lung cancer. Especially if you have no weight loss, no sweats and are not coughing up any blood. If you smoke, you can further reduce your risk by quitting! There are many causes for shortness of breath, so talk to your doctor about any further evaluation you might need.
What can recurring blood in spit indicate? Chest X ray normal. 20 year old male, never smoked, no family history of lung cancer
Oral blood. Anytime there is recurrent blood in oral secretions, a thorough exam is in order. While many doctors immediately consider chest or respiratory causes, there are oral gum and tooth conditions, such as periodontal disease or gingivitis which can be the source of blood. In addition, nasal or sinus disease may result in oral blood. See your dentist, and go from there. Read more...
