My friend is coughing up blood, please suggest him the remedy
Ok well my freind is a smoker of the age 15 and has been since he was 10 I think. He is involved with drugs and drinking. Hes mom has alot of health problems and his dad is just a jerk. He has tried suicide before but I really doubt he ll try again. He has told me that he has been coughing up blood for the past 2 dats (the date is 5/24/07) and Im real worried and I think something might happen. Should I tell someone? Can this be death threatening?
COUGHING OF BLOOD MEANS HEMOPTYSIS MEANS BLOOD FROM LUNGS.
THIS MIGHT BE DOU TO TUBERCULOSIS, OLD FIBROTIC LUNG DISEASE.
SO GO FOR INVESTIGATIONS TO RULE CAUSE.
CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR , GIVE GRADING TO HEMOPTYSIS AND TAKE TREATMENT.
RECURRENT AND MASSIVE HEMOPTYSIS IS LIFE THREATING.
Anytime ANYONE is coughing up blood, that is not a good sign and can possibly the sign of a serious problem, I think you should try to persuade your friend to go to the E.R. if he refuses try telling ur parents and see what they suggest. Try your hardest to get him help but at the same time respect that its his choice in the long run.

A wk after that cuz it wouldn t go away and the smell came I went back to Dr....said it might b pneumonia.... And j had fluid built up in my ears.... For a wk now I haven t been able to hear out of my right ear... My friend looked and said it looks like there is a scan in it.... Not once have i had an earache.... Would I have ruptured my eardrum?
How can I get rid of a severe cough. Originally, I had it for six years, had all of the specialists and tests, etc.Then a friend of mine told me to take 2 claritin , and it went away for about a year. Now, I am recovering from severe pain in the area of my right ear (The doctor said that nothing was wrong with my ear.), and the cough has kicked in. It can be so violent that I vomit. It makes it very hard to communicate or conduct business. What do you suggest?
Hi, I have had UTI like symptoms for 5 years. I have had many, many cultures - all neg. I have also had a bladder ultrasound - again normal, I have tried creams for dermatitis etc. I just read recently that Latent TB can show symptoms of a UTI - 5 years ago - when symptoms first appeared, I was working in an orphanage in Central Asia (ex-soviet state) when drug resistant TB was rife and visiting children regularly in a TB hospital, so I have definitely been exposed. I had terrible pneumonia last year which took a long time to diagnose, and for a while they suspected TB but it didn t show up in my lungs. Could it still possible cause for my UTI - is it worth getting checked?
Dear Dr, I am 30 years Male. I had productive cough in morning for last 2 months and I was suffering from sinusitis also. The sputum was green. Now the cough is gone and only sinusitis remains, no that much sputum. I done a chest x-ray last week which came normal. However doctor told a elevation in Diaphragm and enlagement of heart. What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step
