Get back to the Dr.: Coughing up blood is not a good sign. I would get back to your dr. And be re-evaluated.

See a physician: Coughing bright red blood Coughing up blood can be caused by a variety of lung conditions. Coughing up blood, even in small amounts is always a red flag and needs to be immediately addressed. See your physician for complete physical exam and check your chest and lungs.
