Unclear...: Does your friend have a reason for bleeding, like taking blood thinners? Blood in the nose can be swallowed or aspirated so coughing up blood can be a result of bleeding in the nose. But, why he is bleeding in the first place in unclear from the information provided. Ask your friend's doctor for more specific information. Good luck to your friend!
