Hi I am a bit worried as I have always had that early morning smokers cough for a long time but for the past 6 or 7 months now my morning phlegm has gone from the usual colour to a brownish blood stain colour. I saw my GP and he referred me straight to hospital for a chest X-ray. I am scared to get the results as all I ever hear these days or this year so far, is loads of people are dying or being diagnosed with cancer. I have recently lost a life long friend to two types of cancer and ISLD. I also lost my Uncle to cancer earlier in the year and there's been so many others in the public lime light as well. I also found out at my uncle's funeral that two of my cousins had contracted cancer as well. So I am kind of panicking inside.
