Hi Mr. Singh,
Thanks for your query.
From the details provided, I feel that the origin of blood in sputum is either from sinuses or from the windpipe (in which case the chest x-ray is normal.
You have not mentioned if you are suffering from sinus problem, recurrent common cold
, low grade fever
, weight/appetite loss.
If you do suffer from chronic sinus problem, then, X-ray/CT scan of sinus will reveal the source. Treatment of sinus disease and/or allergic rhinitis
(due to recurrent cold) will cure you.
However, if there is no history of sinus disease, a bronchoscopy
(something like endoscopy
of the windpipe may reveal a bleeding nodule inside). Biopsy of the same will reveal the exact nature of the lesion (tubercular, benign or malignant).
Consult Dr. Singhal and discuss my opinion/recommendation. He will order the said investigations, if he agrees with me.
