Meaning of Hemoptysis
Hemoptysis or haemoptysis is the act of coughing up blood or blood-stained mucus from the bronchi, larynx, trachea, or lungs. This can occur with lung cancer, infections such as tuberculosis, bronchitis, or pneumonia, and certain cardiovascular conditions. - See link

 

Hemoptysis in Spanish is Hemoptisis
La hemoptisis incluye la expectoración de esputo hemoptoico o de sangre fresca procedente del aparato respiratorio, más concretamente de la zona subglótica. Este signo puede ser causa de gran temor en el paciente. Cualquier paciente que presente una hemoptisis intensa debe someterse a las pruebas diagnósticas apropiadas de manera que se pueda encontrar una causa específica. Los pacientes con esputos manchados de sangre también deben ser estudiados, a menos que se esté seguro de que esta clase de hemoptisis se debe a un proceso benigno. Los episodios recurrentes de hemoptisis no se deben atribuir de forma automática a un diagnóstico establecido con anterioridad, tal como las bronquiectasias o la bronquitis crónica. Esta actitud puede hacer que no se diagnostique una lesión grave, pero potencialmente tratable. - See link
