  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.


    I am sorry to hear that your grandma is diagnosed with bronchiectasis. This is when the bronchial tree is not fully extending to the deep parts of the lung. Just like a trees branches get pruned your bronchial tree is pruned to heavily and reduces your ability to breath, This can cause blood in your sputum and is very common finding with bronchiectasis. I would be worried if she cough up lots of blood, but if the blood is only streaks in your sputum then don't worry this is to be expected.
    If this is the case, you should get her completely evaluated by a pulmonologist.
    Hope this helps.
    Take care!!
