Patient Comments: Blood In Semen - Symptoms

What other symptoms did you experience with blood in your semen?

Comment from: Tom, 75 or over Male (Patient) Published: April 14

After noticing blood in what I presumed to be semen, I went to the doctor who referred me for investigation, my bladder was clear but my left kidney showed enlargement. After a CT scan my left kidney was removed and a 40 mm tumor grade 2 discovered. I have recovered well but still have blood in my semen. Lucky me!

I have blood in my semen for the last two years, it has pink color and thin like water. I don't have any pain at all. My CT scan result shows that I have mild enlargement of prostate gland and my blood test result shows TPSA 1.8 I and am on the way to take biopsy.

I noticed that after ejaculation, there was blood in my semen. I then went to the toilet and my urine was clear. It has been going on all week long. I now have a sharp pain/sting at the base of the head in my penis.

I'm 61 and have had blood in my semen (rust or brown color) ever since I had a prostate biopsy (14 months ago). My Urologist didn't seem concerned about it about 6 months after the surgery. I have also developed ED, which Cialis helps some. I do not have BPH. The biopsy last year did show 2 instances of High Grade PIN. My younger brother (56) had a radical prostatectomy 2 years ago after his biopsy showed an 8 Gleason score. Finally, I was diagnosed with Melanoma 7 months ago which was surgically removed. I'm wondering if I should go see a different doctor. Since my PSA dropped from 5 to 0.2 after the biopsy, my wife thinks I'm overreacting. May be.

Shortly after hip surgery, I began having problems with blood in my semen. I went through a series of tests for kidney and bladder problems and the normal digital rectal exam. At the time, my PSA was around 3-3.6. The condition stopped after about six months and was fine for a year. Then I saw spotting again and now it is in my ejaculations. The PSA went from 4.6 to below 4 when it was checked three months ago. No biopsy has been done and my doctor seems irritated that I seem to be worrying about what he says is benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). I am worried and this affects my quality of life. There seems to be a burning sensation between my rear and testicles.

I am on antibiotics and the blood in my ejaculate seems to be getting slightly worse. I've been on antibiotic treatment for almost a week.
