I am a 19 year old male, and I weigh 140 lbs, and I am 5.7 feet tall. About three weeks ago, I went to the doctor for a fever, chills, and a headache. I was told that it was a minor case of flu. I developed blood in my mucus soon after, but I did not go to the doctor, as it went away after four days. Soon after that, I felt better. But recently, I have a cough with yellow phlegm, and I also have a pain in my right lung area, slightly below my chest when I cough or breath deeply. I was told this pain could be due to coughing too hard. I was wondering if these past two instances could be linked together? Does it indicate something serious such as lung cancer? Thanks.
