Squatting Blood in Semen


Pelvis | Urology | Squatting Blood in Semen (Symptom)


Description

The presence of blood in the semen (ejaculation) is also called hematospermia. Hematospermia is not always noticeable, therefore it is difficult to estimate its impact.

Causes

Blood in the semen may be caused by many conditions affecting the genitourinary system male, such as benign or malignant tumors, infections, inflammation of the prostate, calculi, polyps in the urethra, ejaculation duct obstructions, metastatic cancers, cysts, hemorrhage, or other abnormalities in the seminal vesicles.

Affected areas may include the bladder, urethra, testicles, the tubes that distribute semen from the testicles (known as the seminal vesicles), epididymis (a segment of the vas deferens, which serves to store, mature, and sperm transport), and prostate gland. Blood in semen is most commonly a result of a prostate gland biopsy. Similarly, vasectomy semen can lead to blood for about a week after the procedure.
