Question: 29, M, yellow smooth waxy chunks/stones in semen

 MusicalTravel - Sun Feb 19, 2006 3:47 am

I've recently been passing (in ejaculate) various sized, yellow hardish, transparent, waxy when smushed stones/debris in my semen. I recently had a prostate exam and urine test both came up as negative. My doctor said to not worry about the debris, but it seems as though the chunks are getting larger. Any idea on what these are and should I seek further attention?? Any reply would be appreciated, Thank You.....

many years ago l had urine samples with debris floating about in it, much to my consternation, but was told not to worry, not significant, later on being given antibiotic pessaries l discharged masses of yellow bits, with a almost chrystalised appearance to them, it turned out l had a problem with infection on the bladder lining, and a overgrowth of thrush, but these conditions do cause a lot of pain and discomfort, if youve none it could be another reason, you can always go to the genito-urinary clinic who advice on problems of that nature, not just std.

User avatar Hi,
Normal human semen 'gels' following ejaculation.It may contain cell debris, gel-like 'particles' or mucus streaks.These are fairly normal. Stones in the semen are extremely unusual. It is possible that some 'liths' (stones) from the prostate may somehow find their way into the semen.This would be very unusual.These are not well known warning signs of any serious underlying disorder.Good luck!
