Message Subject WTF !! My girlfriend is coughing up pure blood
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
could it be anything from the mouth, tooth? does she have an ulcer?

Coughing up blood is not the same as bleeding from the mouth, throat, or gastrointestinal tract.

Blood that comes up with a cough often looks bubbly because it is mixed with air and mucus. It is usually bright red, although it may be rust-colored. Sometimes the mucus may only contain streaks of blood.

A number of conditions, diseases, and medical tests may make you cough up blood, including:
Blood clot in the lung
Breathing blood into the lungs (pulmonary aspiration)
Bronchoscopy with biopsy
Cystic fibrosis
Inflammation of the blood vessels in the lung (vasculitis)
Injury to the arteries of the lungs
Irritation of the throat from violent coughing (small amounts of blood)
Pneumonia or other lung infections
Pulmonary edema
Systemic lupus erythematosus
