Becs, I think the persistent coughing, which may be caused by the cysts/nodules, may have made you cough blood but I don't think it will be the cysts/nodules themselves bleeding. Please let your doctor know though and s/he may be able to hurry up the scan.


Hi clutter I have double appointment with him on weds so if not through I will see what he can do , panicked a bit !!


Becs, you've probably strained your throat coughing, much like violent sneezing can cause a nosebleed. Try a spoonful of honey in warm water with a wedge of lemon. It's very soothing and 'oils' the throat when plain water won't relieve tickling.
