Is blood in phlegm normal in a bronchiolitis patient?
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns
I am sorry to hear that you are diagnosed with bronchiectasis. This si when the bronchial tree is not fully extending to the deep parts of the lung. Just like a trees branches get pruned your bronchial tree is pruned to heavily and reduces your ability to breath, This can cause blood in your sputum and is very common finding with bronchiectasis. I would be worried if you cough up lots of blood, but if the blood is only streaks in your sputum then don't worry this is to be expected.
I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
