Hello hello if it is fresh blood with usa then it's quite possible then the cause is right up in the throat...its quite possible that due to cough or straining it is happening.. but then on the safer side its better to rule out other causes related to lung..so please meet a physician or a pulmonologist...thank you

Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  You definitely need to get it checked out by a pulmonologist ASAP. A detailed history and a few tests will be required.  Kindly consult a MD consultant physician or a pulmonologist in person for further evaluation and management.  Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Take a course of antibiotics,  do a chest x ray,  if the symptoms recur consult a physician.
