Hi Willy .. Thank you for the question given.

Coughing up blood can occur for several things, including:

Pulmonary TB
Chronic bronchitis
Lung cancer2
Parasitic infection in the lungs2
Lung abscess

Your father has done a chest X-ray and the results you gave him mentioned pneumonia with left pleurisy. Pneumonia is caused due to infection with bacteria in the lungs. Symptoms of pneumonia are coughing, accompanied by fever, cough with greenish phlegm even accompanied by blood, shortness of breath, chest pain especially when coughing, and looking tired. Meanwhile, pleurisy is a condition where there is inflammation of the lining of the lung covering. Symptoms of pleurisy are pain on one side of the chest, especially when coughing, sneezing and moving; shortness of breath, fever.

It is better if you check your father to a pulmonary specialist. So that doctors can carry out an examination directly. And if needed, it can be supported by blood checks. From the results of the examination, the diagnosis can be established and appropriate treatment can be given. Meanwhile, what can be done:

Enough rest
Eat nutritious foods
Using a mask to avoid transmission to nearby people
Drink enough water
Avoid coughing or sneezing too hard to reduce pain in the chest
