Hi Winda, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Coughing up blood or hemoptysis can be caused by many possibilities, some of which are:
Bronchitis or inflammation of the lung bronchi infection tuberculosis (pulmonary tuberculosis) bronchiectasis, which is the occurrence of damage and thickening of the small airways in the lungs, injuries to the lungs, for example due to blunt force collisions in the chest area Autoimmune diseases such as lupus, Wegener's granulomatosis, microscopic polyangitis, Churg- Strauss syndrome COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) Pulmonary embolism or blockage of the blood vessels in the lungs Complications of heart failure Effects from the use of illegal drugs such as cocaine Lung cancer and so on. You experience besides coughing up blood, and you also need physical examinations and supporting examinations such as chest X-rays, CT scans, or blood tests. The condition of coughing up blood is not a normal condition and should get an examination from a doctor directly. Therefore, you should immediately consult a doctor for further evaluation and treatment. The possibility of a complete recovery, of course, really depends on the cause of coughing up the blood that you are experiencing. But leaving these conditions without proper examination and treatment will certainly not have a good impact on your health.
For now you should stop smoking and avoid exposure to cigarette smoke and air pollution. Try to hold back so you don't cough too hard and don't talk too much so you don't cough louder until you bleed. Do not lie down while you are coughing so that when the blood comes out, it does not enter the lungs.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
