This is Dr. David

brownish color in the semen is most likely old blood in the semen.

this is called hematospermia.

this is very common and most likely is normal for you.

most cases of hematospermia resolve on their own.

if the blood in the semen continue, you can see a doctor and get your prostate examined.

but most likely it will resolve on its own for you

let me know if you have questions.

I have a different answer.

This symptoms can be from blood, infection, can be normal, or not normal.

It requires an exam from your is an alert to see your doctor.

A prostate exam is a minimal intervention needed.

So, even if it resolves...don't wait, see your doctor anyway.

That is proper clinical medicine. Any new symptom in this regard should prompt a visit to your doc.

At age 57 you must have a PSA and prostate exam. Any other recommendation would not meet a medical standard of care, and, on line, we can not examine you or run a PSA.
