I was diagnosed with cancer about 3 weeks ago. I Have a growth on the base on my tongue and it has spread to my neck. Today they did the PET scan to see if it had spread to the lungs or any where else. Later this evening I coughed a little and spit out a small about blood. It is mixed with the saliva. Is this caused from the PET scan or is this from the growth in the throat or worse from the lungs.
