Dear Daddy's Girl
Thank you for visiting health24.com.
I suggest that your father consults a Proctologist, in order for him/her to use the correct instruments to determine the cause of bleeding of the piles. It is possible that he has a mucousal tare or an actively bleeding pile. There are other causes for bleeding directly from the anus and these must be excluded, i.e. diverticulitis.
Regarding your question about your father's chest (coughing blood), I recommend that you wait for the results of the chest x-ray before we make any assumptions.
