Hello everyone, i am a very confused and worried person. I use to be a smoker of 20 years. I am 39 years old. It started 6 months ago when i fist spit up blood two days later i quit cigarettes. The reason i use the term spitting up blood because i cant tell if its from my lungs or from my upper respiratory or if i am coughing it up. i spit up blood almost everyday for about 4 months but i dont really have a cough. Actually i dont cough often only to clear my throat. I was getting a lot of mucus build up in throat. i have gone to ENT three times and they said my nose and throat is fine. Then two months after first spitting up blood i started getting chest pain. Its dull pain at any part of my chest and my ribs. At 3 months after spitting up blood i got my CT-scan. Everything was normal. I was relieved and expected the blood to go away. But it still here but now the pattern has changed. I get blood only in the morning now. Its when i wake up and clear my throat with a cough to get the mucus up that i see speck or small blob of blood. Its has been over 6 month and i still cough up brown or black tar from my lungs. Can anyone give me any information? Thank you
