@Deejayelle:  Coughing up blood does not automatically mean lung cancer. Bronchitis and pneumonia can also cause it. Sometimes it doesn’t have a cause and goes away on its own. The same thing happened to FH a few months ago, I had to bribe him to go to the doctor, they ran tests and he was completley fine. He’s healthier than I am actually. 

 

I wouldn’t automatically go to the worst case scenario.

This happens to my husband sometimes, and all it is is a burst blood vessel in his throat or esophagus. The first time it happened, we were terrified and worried about cancer,  but the doctor assured us that all it takes is one weak vessel to cause that to happen and it’s not a big deal. However, this should be a wake up call to your SO to take better care of himself. I know how frustrating that one can be!

@Deejayelle:  Was it just blood he coughed up, or was it mucus with blood.  If it’s mucus and blood, it could just be from the sinuses.

1. Don’t freak out. It COULD be minor or even nothing.

2. Insist that he make appointments to go to the doctor and deal with these things.

I actually coughed up blood just last week lol. I have a chronic lung condition that makes me cough a lot and have very deep coughing fits. it is not that totally uncommon for me to cough up blood. I do not have cancer or TB or any other fatal disease

Sometimes my nose dries out from nose spray and I will spit blood up with mucus but I know it’s allergy related. My FI’s gums bleed A LOT, it took him like a year to listen to me and go to the dentist bc I knew he had periodontal disease. I freaked out when I saw how red the sink was when he brushed his teeth. It totally grosses me out. Now I’m nagging him to go back for follow up. Men are so annoying, like take care of your body you only have one!! I tell him it’s cheaper to take proper care of your mouth than buy new teeth. 🙁 not to mention all of the possible health conditions that result from their symptoms not being addressed. Keep on him and possibly go to the Dr with him. Ugh they never grow up.
