User avatar Hello,While hematospermia could be a scaring experience.In most cases it is not of any serious disease.The cause of bleed could be anywhere in the tract including prostate,testis,or epidydymis.While it is necessary to seek medical attention to rule out some pathologies it is likely that the whole thing would resolve.Less than 1% would have prostatic cancers.Best wishes.
