Dr S.A.Alam :

Well, if this problem happened once then it can be a simple problem like infection or mild injury.

Dr S.A.Alam :

If this brown color came more than once then it means you need to get your semen tested for presence of blood.

Dr S.A.Alam :

you need an ultrasound of the prostate and bladder to see if there is some mass or simply enlarged prostate is causing this due or there is infection.

Dr S.A.Alam :

Let me know if you have questions ?

It's happened three to four times recently?

You need semen analysis and ultrasound test

It can be a simple prostate infection, while at other end it can be chronic infection or some growth which needs to be cleared as early as possible,
