Blood In Semen (cont.)

Medical Author:
Medical Editor:

What is the prognosis (outlook) for patients with blood in the semen?

The prognosis relates to the underlying cause of blood in the semen if a cause can be identified. However, most cases of hematospermia are benign and resolve without treatment. While cancer is a rare cause of blood in the semen, the majority of cases are not related to cancer, especially in younger men.
