i will help you in this?
User : could you tell me what it may be
please provide your age, gender, location
User : 15 male ny
do you have fever?
User : i did a couple days ago but it went away
is there sputum production?
User : yeah
what is the color of sputum?
User : i dont know didnt check
since you have had a history of fever initially
ang then coughed up blood with sputum
i will suggest you to do a few tests and a chest examination
along with chest x-ray
User : could this be life-threatening?
as this could probably be due to infection and rupturing of blood vesels in throat which lead to blood in sputum, or it could be tuberculosis,
this may not life threatening, but can be treated and complications avoided by acting soon
so please get a chest examination, chest x-ray, and sputum culture and sensitivity and AFB smear done
