I was diagnosed 13 yrs ago with AIDS, I am currently undectectable, however, I have had a very long on going problem with spitting up blood...what can be causing this?
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
There's a wide range of things that can cause hemoptysis (coughing up blood) or hemetemesis (vomiting blood). While some aren't very significant (like bronchitis), others can be very serious (like cancer). I can't tell you which is which in your situation, but I'd get to see you doctor in the near future.
Best luck, BY
