Brief Answer:
Do you have breathlessness?

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on HCM.
I can understand your concern.
You are having hemoptysis (blood in sputum).
And most common cause for this is bronchitis and lung infection.
It is also seen in lung cancer.
Since your chest x ray is normal no need to worry for this infection or cancer.
Possibility of bronchitis is more.
Please let me know
1. Do you have breathlessness?
2. Do you have chemical exposure?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better.
I will be happy to help you further.

Brief Answer:
In early stages of cancer, x ray can be normal.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on HCM.
I can understand your concern.. Honestly speaking, in early stages of cancer, chest x ray can be normal.
So if you really want to rule out lung cancer than get done CT thorax with Contrast.
If this is normal than no need to worry for lung cancer.
Please let me know if you had CT thorax done.
Hope I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health. Thanks.

doctor1 MD

could someone please help me understand this situation my grandpa is in right now, im really confused about it ? He is 72 years old and has been smoking for a very long time. He also coughs every now and then, he s been told bye several doctors that he has asthma in the past which was the cause for his coughing. He recently did a CAT SCAN and some other x-rays and they came back negitive for asthma, they actually told him he had water in his lungs . He was given medication for it and he was told that the water in his lungs was gone. He went to diffrent doctor and did a CAT SCAN and was told he had some kind of a shadow on his lungs/spot that is really tiny. The Doctor said it was nothing to worry about and that its just a spot left from the time he had lung infection. Now that same doctor is sending him on more tests, so he can find out the cause of this spot on his lungs?? I SPOKE TO HIS DOCTOR AND HE TOLD ME THAT ALL HE SEE S IS A SPOT ON THE LUNGS & HE DOESNT KNOW IF IT COULD TURN INTO ANYTHING SERIOUS - BUT, before i even spoke to him my, sister had told me that the doctor told her that this was some type of a tumor that was really small and that it could be easily taken care of with surgery because its not spreading right now can anyone tell me is it possible that this is not a tumor since not even the doctor know what it is 100%, he said theres a 50% chance that it might be something serious??? i meam hes this cough forever, and he had no other health problems except for this he does not wanna go to the doctors anymore, he eats good he hasnt changed at all. please give me an answer asap ,thanks for you time.

I have developed a persistent cough after I was diagnosed with a lung infection on 16 August 2011(it was the first time ever that I had lung infection, I , 41yrs old). On 23 Auguse the doctor told me because my lungs have been sensitised it has developed to mild ashma enven though my lungs are clear. I work in an emotionaly toxic environment and is daily under huge stress caused by my Director. Can stress at work cause my chronic coughing (which sometimes make me vomit). I look forward to your answer. Kind regards Crystal

My son and his wife took their baby back to Dr. thought he may have a lung infection so they wanted him x-rayed. The first time they treated him for an ear infection...anyway the x-ray showed 3 broken ribs in the back area, what would cause this??? They are going to their baby Dr on Monday with DHS. I really dont believe it could be child abuse, but it hurts my heart to know he has broken ribs, and as you may imagine my son and daughter-in-law are sick!!!!
