PURPOSE: Hemoptysis is a clinical symptom characterized by the expectoration of blood from the respiratory tract. Its variable causes range from benign infections of the lung, bronchiectasis, to lung cancer. The evaluation of hemoptysis presents a clinical challenge because while most frequently reported causes are benign, recent studies have shown that about 4 % of such patients will develop lung cancer. We present findings of a 5-year retrospective review of patients seen by providers across all specialties in our medical system, reporting on the prevalence of lung cancer and factors associated with diagnosis.
