Spitting dark blood discharge, feeling of something stuck in throat, pain in cheek, nose. Should I be concern?

I ve been experiencing a dark bloody discharge from what I think is coming from my sinuses. When I spit it out it looks like a dark bloody clot. Sometimes when I expel this mucous it may be streaked through the mucous but still bloody in color. A few weeks ago I was also experiencing a feeling in my throat like something was stuck. This has passed this week, no feeling of something stuck in throat but started with the dark bloody mucous from sinuses. I do have alittle pain in my left side of my cheek area near my nose . Pressure feeling like. I am concerned with the color of the discharge.

Dear Concerned.,

Thanks for writing to us.

You have to give the duration of these symptoms and whether associated with fever?Are you a smoker?Do you also have associated loss of appetite and weight?

Kindly get yourself investigated with routine blood count/blood chemistry/blood smear study/urinalysis/X-Ray Paranasal sinuses/Chest X-Ray PA view. In addition bleeding and clotting Time.

In all probabality it could be an acute exacerbation of Chronic sinusitis. a course of Antibiotic and Nasal Decongestants/NSAID/Steam Inhalation/Nutritional Suppliments will be sufficient.Pls abstain from smoking/alcohol.

In case any investigation points towards Kochs/Nasopharyngeal Malignancy ,a consultation with Internal Medicine specialist and ENT Surgeon will be required for further management.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.,

Best Regards.,

Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan,
