My father is 54 & recently while coughing he is getting blood in his cough. This blood is sometimes red & sometimes black in color. We have consulted a doctor in our city & he is currently admitted my father in the hospital to temporarily control the blood in the cough. Some reports have come today that says that there is a dense consolidation in upper lungs & Likely Alveolar haemorrhage. What does this mean Doctor? Please help me and tell me if this is Cancer, TB, any other acute disease. I am really worried for his health and expect some help in this regard. We stay in Allahabad Uttar Pradesh & can you please suggest a good doctor for this treatment. What is the meaning of Likely Alveolar haemorrhage? I look forward to hear from you soon. Thank you.
