I would like some more information :
Did he have difficulty in breathing ?
Does he normally bleed from the nose on other previous occasions ?
Does he have any abdominal pain ?
Does he have any blood in stools or black stools ?
Is there any family history of bleeding problems from your side or his fathers side ?
Thank you very much for the information.
If you do not have a family history in mind.
I would suggest you to get the following screening tests done :
plasma thromboplastin time
complete blood count
blood group testing
hemoglobin for thalassemia trait study
The present issue at hand does not sound alarming as he may have thrown up the swallowed blood .
But it is better to investigate as a baseline.
Do let me know if you have any further queries.
It definitely does not sound like a bleeding issue from the stomach as there are no other significant symptoms.
