Bleeding and Clotting Disorders
my husband has been sick for about 2 weeks now and now he has blood in his mucus and phlem. I think that it might be because of an irritated throat and nose but im not a doctor. He refuses to go a doctor, should i make him go anyway?
What you are describing could be related to an infection of the upper respiratory tract, or something more serious. Your husband really should see a doctor to get checked out and to likely have a chest x-ray.
