Hematospermia occurs when blood appears in a man’s ejaculate (semen). It can have a wide variety of causes, such as:
- Kidney stones
- Prostate cancer
- Recent prostate surgery
- Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
- Testicular cancer
- Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
Though hematospermia is usually benign (noncancerous), it’s important for you to talk to your doctor about this condition. Experts at the University of Miami Health can help uncover the cause and provide proper treatment.
