Hi Jennifer,

Anyone who is sick may cough up blood. Coughing up blood means that there is damage to the blood vessels of the lungs. Damage to the blood vessels of the lungs can be due to the following conditions.
1. Violent cough (allergies, heart failure, bronchitis etc)
2. Trauma (Motor vehicle accidents, fist fights etc)
3. Chest infections (Bronchitis, Pneumonia)
4. Blood disorders and bleeding disorders.
5. Cancers
6. Pulmonary TB (this is the same as #3)
7. Congenital blood vessel disorders
8. Foreign bodies

It probably means you have a bacterial lung infection. You need to see a doctor immediately for antibiotics. Lung cancer usually produces a dry cough in the early stages.
