my brother has aids and is spitting up blood, what does that mean?
| Response from Dr. Frascino
That means your brother needs to go see his HIV doctor right away! There are a variety of medical conditions that can cause hemoptysis (coughing up blood). I cannot diagnose the cause over the Internet. However, no matter what the cause, your brother needs to see his doctor or go to an emergency room without delay.
