Most of the time, it's not obvious what causes blood in semen and it goes away on its own, but it's important to get it checked at your clinic or one of our mobile trucks to ensure it's nothing serious.

Common causes of blood in semen include:

●          an infection, such as a urinary tract infection (UTI) or sexually transmitted infection (STI)

●          a recent procedure or test you may have had

●          a problem with the prostate, such as prostatitis or an enlarged prostate

Rarely, blood in semen can be a sign of cancer, such as prostate cancer.
