Haemoptysis or blood in cough is one of the cardinal symptoms of many of the lung diseases.

Ca.lung and tuberculosis top the list.

The patient of blood in cough needs further evaluation by xray chest,AFB culture,bronchoscopy to know the real cause.

As you said it can happen in SCLC in bronchial tube at entrance.Bronchoscopy is best in such case.
