Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding blood in sputum and you are feeling blockage in throat. Blockage in throat indicates either there is swelling (oedema) or any growth.

Oedema may appear due to acidity, infection (bacterial or viral) whenever odema is associated with small ulceration there are chances of blood in sputum, on the other hand growth till it is small in size it gives only feeling of blockade and as soon as this gets infected or hert bleedilg may occur from growth.

Therefore you are advice to consult any ENT doctor for thorough examinationof throat and chest to find out the cause of blockage in throat and possible cause of bleeding. So that accordingly it may be treated.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The blood appears to be from the throat, that is inflamed - allergic or infection
See your ENT specialist again...

You have not stated your age, gender, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities
Since it is recurrent, have some basic investigations - X-ray chest and sinuses, Blood counts, bleeding diathesis...

For the long term, it is wiser to stop tobacco and alcohol...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
