Coughing up Blood- Radiation Symptom?

My 76 year old mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Adenocarcinoma Non Small Cell Lung Cancer about 2 months ago.  We were quite shocked as she's the epitome of health otherwise.  She just finished a round of radiation to help with her pain and to help her stop coughing up blood.  Oddly, she stopped coughing up blood a week or so before radiation.  Now it's starting again.  She has finished radiation for about a week now and just started coughing up what looks like clots or bloody phlegm.  Have any of you experienced coughing up blood as a side effect of radiation?Her throat has been very raw and painful.  We are hoping the blood is from irritation or the tumor being burned.

Thank you for your help.  Tracy
