Hematospermia is the presence of blood in semen, most often a benign symptom, among men age 40 or older; hematospermia is a slight predictor of cancer, typically prostate cancer. No specific cause is found in up to 70% of cases. In hematospermia, the most frequent causes predisposing to infections include prostate stones and chronic prostatitis with a rate of 25–30% of all cases. However, no etiological cause can be detected in the 15% of patients. Hematospermia had a low recurrence rate with a rare incidence of serious disease in the etiology and it was also suggested that transabdominal ultrasound is sufficient for the assessment of hematospermia instead of using further screening methods such as transrectal ultrasonography or MRI. The most common causes of iatrogenic hematospermia are prostate biopsies, invasive procedures to the urogenital system and drugs. The most implicated drug causes in the etiology is anticoagulants, antiagregant agents and occasionally NSAIDs. Despite the absence of evidences that chemotherapy drugs directly cause hematospermia, chemotherapy side effects during the treatment of primary urogenital tract cancers may lead to cause of hematospermia.

The function of Chinese herbal medicine was recognized by many patients since its utilization has become popular in some disease such as diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome, hepatocellular carcinoma, and coronary heart disease. Hematospermia responded to the Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill therapy through eliminating the inflammation. Patients with discolored semen will be recovered without any adverse effects.
