Talk to your doctor: Blood in sputum is never normal. Depending on the patient's age, health and lung condition(s), it can be something that needs an immediate full-scale evaluation or a brief time to see if it comes back. Let your doctor know what you are seeing and whether there are other symptoms such as fever, weight loss, shortness of breath or other new problems. Good luck!
