Blood in spit, nose and throat, cough, shortness of breath, hunger. Lung cancer?

Hi I have a question. I'm a 30 year old male with tiny blood streaks in my spit. I have dry room problems and often have blood in my nose which gets caught in my throat, however I do notice the difference. My morning smokers phlem has no streaks and is always normal as it usual is, I smoke less than a pack of day and since I saw this I cut to bout 3 4 a day. I have no natural need to cough just force myself because I'm freaked out a lot, no shortness of breath, no chest pain, always hungry, plenty of energy and always feel strong. What is the likelihood of this being lung cancer?

-Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your querry.
I ti s hard to say but this sounds to me like chronic bronchitis or emphysema. Cancer isnt first thing to think of but whatever it is you should reduce smoking and do further tests starting with chest xray.
Hope I have answered your query. Regards
