I have been noticing various blood in my intermittently

This answer was rated:

I have been noticing various blood in my ejaculate intermittently over the past year or so. Sometimes it goes away for a while but lately it has hung around to such a degree that ive stopped having sex out of worry that it could be something serious. when i look at the skin on the underside of my scrotum, it appears that I have broken blood vessels visible through the skin. I would love to know what can be done about this.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

is there any pain, burning sensation, etc?

Customer:

There is no pain or burning sensation

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok

Dr. P. Jyoti :

most cases of blood in the ejaculate is due to small traumas which are unnoticed

Dr. P. Jyoti :

even trauma during sex can cause this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but since you are having it recurrently other factors may be involve

Dr. P. Jyoti :

involved

Dr. P. Jyoti :

another possibility is polyps in the ejaculatory duct

Dr. P. Jyoti :

prostatitis or other inflammation in the prostate can also cause this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you need to get checked up for this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

dont worry, this is not at all likely to be malignancy at your age and considering the long length of your symptoms

Dr. P. Jyoti :

so you should go to the doctor

Dr. P. Jyoti :

go to your family physician/primary care physician

Customer:

okay

Dr. P. Jyoti :

specialist for this is a Urologist and you can consider going to one if available

Dr. P. Jyoti :

a number of different treatments can be given depending on the cause

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but first the cause needs to be identified

Customer:

okay. i dont have medical insurance, but I think this is worth paying out of pocket for i suppose

Dr. P. Jyoti :

an Ultrasound is usually sufficient to identify the cause

Dr. P. Jyoti :

so go ahead an get this done

Dr. P. Jyoti :

yes, I am afraid you have to get this done even if you are paying out of your pocket

Dr. P. Jyoti :

cant neglect this

Customer:

okay

Dr. P. Jyoti :

dont worry, both the cause and treatment is simple enough

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but it needs to be treated at the earliest

Dr. P. Jyoti :

take care

Customer:

alright. whata would the treatment be?

Dr. P. Jyoti :

as i said, in most cases it is due to trauma or infection

Dr. P. Jyoti :

so antibiotics, enzymatics to decrease inflammation, etc are all that are required

Dr. P. Jyoti :

in polyps, sometimes excision may be needed

Customer:
