Occasional Black Stuff In Spits After Brushing, Do Not Smoke. What Could Be Causing This?

Sometimes in the morning I have been spitting out black stuff after brushing my teeth . I dont smoke anything and never have in my life. This has been happening for more than a month now but I have thought nothing of it til now after reading somethings online. Thing is I m suffering from no symptoms like chest pain or anything so I honestly dont know whats causing it. Any idea on what it could be?

Hi. Please examine your oral cavity before brushing your teeth to see if you can see anything black. If nothing seems to be there, get yourself examined by an ENT surgeon or get the spit sample examined. It is difficult to comment on what you spit sitting online. May be i have not helped you, but this is the way to go about it. Thank you.
