Hallo Anna
This is called hematospermia and is more common than you think. It sometimes happen due to infection and sometimes it happens without any reason at all. Because in a small % of patients it can be a sign of prostate cancer and because he is over 50, if he has not had a prostate examination in the last year, it will be wise to have it checked out by your doctor.
