Hematospermia,[lower-alpha 1] the presence of blood in semen, is most often a benign symptom.[1] Among men age 40 or older, hematospermia is a slight predictor of cancer, typically prostate cancer.[2] No specific cause is found in up to 70% of cases.[3]

Notes

  1. The symptom is also known as haematospermia, hemospermia and haemospermia.
