This is Dr. David

does he have hemorrhoid veins around his anus? this can cause bleeding and blood in his shorts in the back side.

he may need a colonoscopy to look into his rectum to look for hemorrhoids and the rest of his colon for sources of his bleeding.

he may need his urine checked for blood in his urine as well

when was the last time he went to see a doctor for evaluation.

has he ever had a colonoscopy before?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No the blood is in the front part of his shorts. The penis area. He's up to date with his colonoscopy He hasn't seen a dr. for this yet because it just started today. What do you think it could be ? Could it be cancer ? Please let me know.. I just paid 36.00 for your reply. Not cheap.

sometimes blood can be mixed with semen very often and be normal.

semen can come out in the shorts at night time when he sleeps, in the morning if he is having an erection.

blood in semen is called hematospermia.

98% of the time, this is a benign condition and usually gets better on its own and is not alarming.
