I have been coughing up blood, had lung scan, no tumors were detected but they found three spots on my lung, the doctors don't know what the spots are and dont know where the blood is coming from. Can anybody help? Sad

Are you going to a lung specialist, you always have a right to a second opinion, if it was me, I would keep trying different dr's until I got some answers your Dr. Should refer you to another Dr. So you can get answers.

Coughing Up Blood
Thankyou for your reply, yes i've seen two pulmonary drs., I was hospitalized over night two weeks ago for it and the Dr. There said I had lung infection from bronchitis and he put me on seven days of anti-biotics, a week after that my pulmonary Dr.Did a scope and saw nothing. I go back in three weeks and he wants to send me to a surgeon, he said they will cut my chest open and take a piece of my lung to examine. I don't think I will consent to that procedure.

I have a problem similar to this. Started when 2 months after I turned 19 and now I'm almost 20. Nothing yet... live in Canada health care sux.

Had a bronschopy, CT scan, blood test and X ray.

Two doctors prescribed medicine before I went to a lung specialist.

Didn't take the meds from the doctors.. waiting for reply on my condition.. >.>
