Thank you for trusting HCM

Dear it may be due to

1.possible upper respiratory infection.(pharyngitis, tonscillitis)
2.Acute bronchitis which may lead hemoptysis.
3.Sinusitis may cause blood in sputam.
4. Pneumonia or pulmonary embolism.

So he may need complete evaluation. Take complete course of antibiotic still not improved He may need upper GI scopy and bronchoscopy evaluation.

Please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.
