Health concern

Patient : My father is 39 years old, he smokes a lot and coughs so much that sometimes he gets dizzy to the point he cant even stand. His entire face goes as red as an apple and there are times when he throws up. When he goes to the bathroom he is pooping blood, and sometimes he is coughing up blood as well. But the pooping blood isn't a small amount either like it's pretty much all blood. I know that he had to go to the doctors for a lung capacity test but he never went, he is very stubborn going to the doctors. My question is what do you think it could possibly be, I know that it is serious I just have trouble getting him to the doctor.
