Blood in Sperm-Doctor says it’s nothing to worry about?

I have had blood in my sperm for over 1 year. I am 60 years old. My urologist says it’s nothing to worry about but something must be wrong. It’s not normal. Where is the blood coming from?

You should get a scan done of the prostate and testicles etc. an ultrasound might be enough.

It could be an infection (would need an std test), or it could be small calculi, trapped somewhere such as prostate causing small tears. It could be more serious. Would need a scan an PSA test.

Hmmm… I wouldn’t be too worried about occasional blood in Semen, but if it’s  been ongoing for a year or more, that would definitely concern me. Now here’s another question: Has this just been occurring occasionally for a year or more, or is it every single time? I’d be especially worried if it were every time. If this were me, I’d probably go see another Urologist & get a 2nd opinion. If you do, let us know what you’re told about it.
