See doctor: If you are coughing up blood you need to see your doctor, TB could be a cause but could be a tumor. Do you smoke or have you smoked in the past?

Hi there In the case where a person has been diagnosed with TB and has been on treatment for 1 week, is it normal for them to cough up blood?

Lengthy treatment: The treatment will take months, and it is important to not miss doses of the medication. There may be bleeding associated with pulmonary TB. A follow up appointment will be scheduled by his physician.
