Emergency ? !: Bleeding as you describe may be due to a local process but hemoptysis as described may also be life threatening depending on its source (lungs, of greatest concern). Your sense of a persistent mass in your throat with bleeding requires urgent attention.

See your doctor.: Coughing up blood is never normal. It deserves an evaluation to sort out what is going on. See your doctor soon. Do not delay. Good luck
