Q.

Periodic blood in my semen with heavy bleeding

I have consulted a urologist and there is issue with the prostate or pain when urinating. PSA levels are low. Could this be a bacterial infection of the testicles? Will a course of clindahexal help?

Dear Len, when having the signs and symptoms you describe, one should never attempt self-medication. Having a PSA test may indicate the presence of prostate cancer, however, individuals with a low PSA may also present with prostate cancer. A bacterial infection of testicles (called orchitis) is not associated with pain on passing urine. You should return to your Urologist without delay so that he/she can do further tests to determine the cause of your problems. (MCH).
