Get bronchoscopy to rule out cause of hemoptysis.. do AFB culture which completely rules out TB infection.. hemoptysis is common in active TB infection as well as past TB infection.. if fever or weight loss present along with hemoptysis, suspect TB infection

Hemoptysis is a common problem in post TB patients. All the reports may be normal. If you have doubts then a bronchoscopy can be done to rule out any intra bronchial cause. Spirometry should be done after 2 weeks of stoppage of hemoptysis.
