Hello doctor,

I got blood in my cough two weeks back only once and there are red pimples on my neck. I am feeling weak. I used to take tobacco one year back which I left after rehabilitation. I have read that these are symptoms of cancer.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Do not panic. At this young stage lung cancer is unlikely, blood in sputum has multiple reasons like bronchitis, bronchiectasis, which can be treated. The red rash can be a local vasculitis or allergic cause too. Kindly do a routine blood test and chest X-ray and contact us through profile for further follow-up.
