Our expert says:
Cough up of blood at your age is
abnormal. There are abnormalities of the
lung that can be missed on ENT examination and on chest x-rays. I wonder you’ve had a CT scan of the chest
(where you lie flat on a table that goes through a large donut-shaped structure
churning out a very detailed x-ray of the lung). If not, and the problem persists, then you
need to go back to the hospital and suggest that this be done. I presume that your teeth have been checked
out and that there are no major dental problems (e.g. from gum bleeding).
