i would have been happy if u specify your age and medical background. blood in sputum is a medical emergency and can be life threatening. visit a specialist earliest.
often chronic bronchitis is associated with tuberculosis. the x ray pattern and Ct chest is mor important here. you may consult me.
most cities are equiped with management but I am afraid it may get late stage.
if in mumbai you may visit my hospital.
