This is Dr. Davidthis sounds like a tough is not easy being 83 with many medical problems.but it is not normal to have blood and coagulated products in the pleural space.he needs more than a chest xray. he needs at least a chest CT scanand the pleural fluid to be cultured and checked for bacterial infection and also cancer cells should be looked atsee if there is a surgeon there who can do a VATS or video assisted thorascopy procedure to look into his pleural chest cavity to check for evidence of cancer or infection. he might need a pleural biopsy to check for cancer in the pleural space.if there is a hidden cancer there in the pleural space, it can cause blood and pleural effusion fluid to form.let me know if you have questions.
