Hello, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Prolonged cough and bloody cough can be caused by several things, namely:
- Tuberculosis: Tuberculosis will cause symptoms that last for a long time (more than 3 weeks), usually phlegm, and sometimes bleeding.
- Pneumonia: infection that causes inflammation of the air sacs in one or both lungs.
- Bronchitis: inflammation that occurs in the main respiratory tract or bronchi.
-Bronchiectasis: permanent damage and widening of the bronchus and respiratory tract
- and others.
We recommend that you invite your father to do a direct examination with the doctor. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations, or supporting examinations (such as x-rays, laboratory examinations, etc.) to find out the cause of your father's complaints.
