Hemoptysis...: Hemoptysis, or coughing blood, has many etiologies. It is usually due to bronchitis but malignancy is another possibility that needs to be ruled out. If you have ever smoked, you may need a chest cat scan to be sure there is no malignancy present. Postnatal drip can cause bronchospasm as well as blood in sputum so this needs treatment. See your doctor and discuss ct scan!
