Brief Answer:
Appropriate investigations are required

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
If you are having blood with phlegm in the cough, then this should be investigated property by a respiratory medicine specialist.
You need to get a sputum examination, bronchoscopy and CT scan, if required, to confirm the diagnosis.
It can be due to tuberculosis infection, bronchitis, or cancerous condition anywhere in the respiratory tract.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
