Large anterior thigh swelling (malignancy) with extensive lung secondaries. Patient is in fact having massive haemoptysis and is confusingly thinking that he is vomiting blood. Is about to land in shock due to volume loss.Needs urgent attention and blood transfusion. However UGI endoscopy and gastroentrologist opinion could be sought after initial stabilization.

Thank you sir
