Coughed up dark red sputum
I am a smoker, around 4 to 5 cigs in a day. And last week i coughed up dark red sputum of a thickes consistency, it almost seemed like a fine tube in my mouth and rough the second time. First time i did not notice. Has happened thrice only. Need to know if it should be ignored or investigated further. Happened thrice in a week, 10 days ago and not after that. Also do not see any perceptible difference in cough or voice sounds.

This needs investigation. Please see a chest specialist. May be inconsequential also. But you need consultation.
