I am 48 years old and have a healthy live with 1 partner

Resolved Question:

I am 48 years old and have a healthy sex live with 1 partner who I have been seeing at weekends for 18 months. Last weekend I could not get very excited but did eventually ejaculate. Today I was excited and masturbated. The result was a rust coloured liquid, what is this? I am not in any pain, but did take part in a long distance run on Sunday. I am generally healthy, exercise regularly, but worry sometimes about my diet

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
The rust color is blood. Blood in the semen or hematospermia is quite common and usually benign
It could be from the run causing trauma in your genital tract.
It could also be from prostate enlargement or infection.
I would advise you to see your GP and have him check your prostate.
It is likely nothing to worry about though and you should be fine
