For the last 3 years I have had bouts of hematospermia (blood in the ejaculate). The most recent and still occurring has been ongoing since September. I've had a prostate exam, taken antibiotics, and underwent a cystoscope. The digital exam showed that the prostate was enlarged. The cystoscope showed nothing abnormal. The antibiotics worked for a short time, but the symptoms returned.
I'm wondering how serious this is, if serious at all. Shoul I just continue on antibiotics, or should I get a PSA test? As far as I know, there is no family history of prostate problems. But I suppose a history has to have a beginning.

Please state your age and ethnicity. Also, please indicate if you have suffered from, or received treatment for any sexually transmitted disease and/or complications, such as prostatitis.
Prostate cancer generally affects men over the age of 50, and is rarely found in men under that age. If you are in that age group, a PSA test would be indicated.
