I am a smoker who now smokes about a pack a week, less than I ever have. Lately on 3-4 different occasions I have coughed up some kind of tissue, each time the tissue looks the same. It's about 1/4 long has a round sac like "ball" on one end, and what appears to be a small branch coming of it, usually a little extension and a tiny branch of it. I am scared! Is this normal? Am I coughing up part of my lungs? I tried to find a photo of the tissue with no luck... any words of wisdom, besides quit smoking? (I know!!!)
If you are smoking less than now than ever- terrific.
Your lung tissues could be trying to heal themselves during this period. This may explain the couphing up of dead or dying tissues.
I also used to smoke about 17 years ago. Even now, on infrequent occasions I still cough up some small tissue peices. Supposedly my lungs would've completely healed and repaired themsleves by now, but sometimes the damage is irreparable. Either way, I am so glad I quit! Good wishes to you.
I'm 13 years old, I have been getting lots of headaches, lost about 10 pounds and a few times a week coughing up tisue. But I have never really seen it before. Like this may sound gross but when I feel it comming up ( feels like tisue ) I just swoalee it.
I am 13, a girl and I have been getting lots of headache, use to get really dizze and blurryness in my eyes. Not too mention i still get dizze but my eyes havn't been bugging me for about a few months now. Also, I have lost 10 pounds not even trying to or worry about it. I have also been throwing up some kind of tisue and I don't know what it is. Can somebody else me ?!?!
