blood in saliva??? - Page 2

post #16 of 29
I wonder why you had a colonoscopy done at the age of 27? Do you have a family hx of colon polyps?

Finally, go out to dinner before the first night brushed and flossed. Hadnt flossed in a bit and so important was blood. So that the mouth was dripping uut up.Either cleared rinsing has several mintues it's pretty much assured me it was esoph. Or related to colon cancer, which was my major concern.

Blood in the urine is always a concern is to ensure not only in a few cases, such as strenuous exercise and drugs. Blood in the urine can be seen with the naked eye, called gross hematuria, and if it is recognized under the microscope is called microscopic hematuria.

no family history, at one of my follow ups with the doc about 1 1/2 years ago, I had mentioned I lost about 10 lbs. (w/o trying) and wasnt feeling that well. He put me in for a colonoscopy pretty quick, I guess just to be safe. Turned out to be perfectly fine and we chalked it up to life/law school stress.

I see. I heard of anyone in there 20s who gets a colonoscopy w/o any familial hx of colon adenomas or persistent hematochezia.

i would probably get a second opinion. he clearly doesnt know whats wrong. many doctors dont know what the fuck they are talking about and you dont want to be in a bad situation because the dr didnt know the problem.

I think I am going to make an appt. with my past stomach doc and see what he thinks. Although I do tend to wonder if it were something serious would it not happen more than one time? it never happened before and has yet to happen again since that night.... guess I am just trying to be positive about it.

Either way, prob. gonna make an appt. with the gastroenterologist this week.

IMO I don't think you have anything to worry about since it's not persistent.

i agree it most likely isnt serious. but from experience its better to find out then one day it happens again and its at a real serious point etc.

It's hard to find a definitive prognosis of these types of events. I would suggest that next time if this happens again, take a sample of the sputum and bring it to your primary care physician asap. they might be able to do a smear and figure out where it came from.

I took pics of it when it happened... just didnt have my digi cam in the car to show my PC when I had the appointment. Gonna show it to the stomach doc tho.

pictures won't help that much. Take a cotton Qtip and swap it. Put in a small ziplock bag and stick in the fridge.
