is there any pain, burning sensation, etc?
There is no pain or burning sensation
most cases of blood in the ejaculate is due to small traumas which are unnoticed
even trauma during sex can cause this
but since you are having it recurrently other factors may be involve
another possibility is polyps in the ejaculatory duct
prostatitis or other inflammation in the prostate can also cause this
you need to get checked up for this
dont worry, this is not at all likely to be malignancy at your age and considering the long length of your symptoms
so you should go to the doctor
go to your family physician/primary care physician
specialist for this is a Urologist and you can consider going to one if available
a number of different treatments can be given depending on the cause
but first the cause needs to be identified
okay. i dont have medical insurance, but I think this is worth paying out of pocket for i suppose
an Ultrasound is usually sufficient to identify the cause
so go ahead an get this done
yes, I am afraid you have to get this done even if you are paying out of your pocket
cant neglect this
dont worry, both the cause and treatment is simple enough
but it needs to be treated at the earliest
alright. whata would the treatment be?
as i said, in most cases it is due to trauma or infection
so antibiotics, enzymatics to decrease inflammation, etc are all that are required
in polyps, sometimes excision may be needed
alright thank you
thats a small day procedure
glad to help
