In brief: Hemoptysis

Coughing up blood, hemoptysis, can represent serious disease including infection and cancer.
You must see your doctor as soon as you can to evaluate your condition!

In brief: Commonly, infection

Infection such as bronchitis, is the most common cause of blood tinged sputum.
However, if this persist , other conditions such as tuberculosis, abscess, cancer, abnormal blood vessels, blood clots, fungal disease may be present. If it doesn't stop on its own, seek medical attention.
