Abstract

Hematospermia is not uncommon. Patients who note blood in their semen experience anxiety because of a concern that their symptoms are due to malignancy. Since most cases resolve spontaneously, reassurance can usually be given. In most patients under age 30, hematospermia is idiopathic or associated with inflammatory or infectious conditions. When it occurs in association with other urologic symptoms, or when it persists in patients over age 40, more serious disorders must be considered.
