Blood in spit severs on smoking, stopped smoking, feeling of dripping at the back of nose to throat, difficulty in swallowing. Cause?

I m a 21 year old male, i smoke (average), about a week ago i noticed very light blood when i spit and it seemed to get worse when i smoke. i stopped smoking immediately after i noticed that and its been about 5 days, the blood in my spit is now very light and i only see it from time to time not always. i feel mucus in my throat and took a medication called mucuslovan and strepsils , and its getting cleared up. i feel like something is dripping from the back of my nose to my throat from time to time and my throat feels sore (a very light type of sore), but there s no blood when i blow my nose, i don t have any coughs, i dont feel any pain anywhere, i am able to swallow (food & water, hot or cold) normally. I m wondering what might i have thats causing me to spit very light blood? is it from my lungs or throat or nose?

HI I read your mail as you said you are average smoker till last week and you are noticing blood in your sputum for one week,you feel as something is trickling at the back of your nose to your throat but no blood is seen in nasal discharge on blowing your nose for cleaning,this story brings some fact in my mind that you may be having some pathology in your pharynx which extends from back of nose to larynx & opening of oesophagus(food canal),to clear this you should be examined by E.N.T.specialist for diagnostic nasal endoscopy and Direct laryngoscopy to findout the site of should also go for culture & sensitivity of your sputum,sputum for AFB,X-Ray chest,X-Ray paranasal sinuses.After above exercise i hope your problum will solve and one can get the correct line of treatment.Thanks.
