This isnt for me or for anyone in particular, i was just curious. What are the reasons or causes for coughing up blood? Can it be self inflicted or can it be down to illness or something?
Asthma, bronchitis, pleurisy, lung infections, bleeding stomach ulcers, bulemia can all cause coughing up blood. A doctor is really needed for treatment of this. Take care
When somebody chokes on the blood or breaks a severe blood vessel near the nose/mouth tunnel
Punctured lung
When someone coughs up blood, that is usually a problem with the lungs, such as an infection like TB (tuberculosis) or a lung tumor. A trachea problem could also cause it.If someone is vomiting up blood, that is typically a problem with the stomach or esophagus. A common cause is a bleeding ulcer. Stomach or esophagus tumors or infections can also cause it.
