For the last 6 months I have been coughing up small balls, My mucus is shaped in a small ball and I cough these up a lot. I woke up this morning having to cough up my balls again, when I noticed a small amount of blood. Also my chest hurts, if feels painful sometimes. Does anyone know what this could be? i am worried about it. Not just the small amount of blood but also the coughing up balls all the time. It's a daily thing.
