For the past 4 weeks I have been sneezing up blood, coughing up blood (not sure if it is coming from the nose), headache, chest tightness, itchy back, asthma like breathing, chocking on my own nasal and throat sputum. I had 6 x-rays breast within the last year. Nothing. Is going for a stress test, what i smy chance I have lung cancer at age 33?

    Hi if you have had lung x-rays and there is no cancer then you haven't got it.   It would show up on an x-ray.   That's not to say there is nothing wrong but it does sound more like stress to me.   Anxiety can cause some of your symptoms so take the stress test.

    You can do a symptom checker online which can give you a guide,  or look up the symtoms of lung cancer.   I do know that losing weight for no obvious reason and clubbed fingers and toes can be signs.  Coughing up blood can be caused by lots of things including a broken vein etc.   If you are in the UK then google the NHS site.  x

      Sometimes it's just nothing. If it's pretty light it's just nasty old mucus. You could have an infection too. But I wouldn't go thinking cancer. What did ur doc say?

    Hope with further tests results you will get to the bottom on the cause of your symptoms.

    Usually if cancer is suspected that is the first focus testing for it or to eliminate it or confirm it.

    When I had suspected lung cancer I had several chest xrays before being referred to a specialist when further scans and tests were carried out.  I did have a shadow on the lung at the time and a long standing chest infection.

    Luckily for me, it wasn't lung cancer but it did leads to being diagnosed with emphysema.

    Wishing you all the best with your ongoing test results.
