Why Purple Spots on Tongue???
i have huge purple spots on my tongue and i cough up blood everytime i brush my teeth y????
You should see you primary care physician as soon as possible.
Coughing up blood is not normal and could be an indication of a serious medical problem. Without seeing you and or being able to examine and run a number of laboratory tests, I can not determine what is going on.
Because of the potential medical problems that may be occurring, I strongly recommend that you contact your primary care physician.
