I have brownish sperm. Is this normal?

Human semen is a composition of fluids. The majority of semen, 65%, is composed of seminal plasma and mucus. 10% of semen is composed of sperm produced in the male testes and the remaining 25% of semen is composed of prostatic fluids.

Normal semen is milky white but a number of factors can affect the texture, color, and odor of semen such as medication, diet, and diseases. A yellow tinge to semen is not uncommon especially if one has not ejaculated for some time. A brown tinge to semen can indicate old blood. This can be secondary to pelvic floor trauma/injury, prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), orchitis (inflammation of the testicle), or malignancy.

If your semen was brown only on one isolated occasion, it just could just a transient phase. However, if you are concerned or your semen has been brown from some time, is becoming progressively browner, or you have noticed a lump in your testicle, then you should seek medical attention to evaluate the cause of your condition.

  1. I have been sick for quite some time with stomach problems and lung problems. I recently had a D Dimer done which resaults were 2.0 as well on a ct scan they found There is atelectasis in the lingula anterolaterally and inferiorly. Atelectasis versus scarring is seen in the midaspect of the lung bases. There is a tiny, non calcified nodule in the left major fissure measuring 0.4 cm in diameter. That was directly from the resaults. Quite a few family members including aunts uncles and mother had blood clots in their lungs. As well my grandfather passed of lung cancer when I was about 12 years old. Is there any advice you can give me? I have tried getting answers from my primary who just blows me off stating I have mood problems (which they said I had right after the lose of my 25 day old son so yes I would be majorly depressed.) I have tried getting answers for a while now with no real answers just that it is in my head because “I have Depression due to the lose of my son.” This same doctor tried telling me that all my lower left abdominal pain was from a cyst on my overy which I was diagnosed with Diverticulitis by a different Dr who ordered a colonoskopy(spelling?) My dr wanted me to cancel that procedure which I am not going to because I feel that procedure is nessasary to find the full cause of my stomach pain but my dr perscribed 2 antibiotics because my wbc was elevated. (he said that was caused because of diverticulitis yet according to him I dont have that) I know it dont make since. Also when I eat certion foods my stomach pain gets worse.
  2. I am a almost 67 yr. old female, with Post Polio Syndrome. In the past year, I have noticed that I require a lot of sleep. I have had my physical from my heart doctor and family doctor, and all is well. My only theory is that I am very active, and then it catches up with me, and the motor neurons are continuing to be over used and it is my body telling me to really take it easy. I have no prior notice that my body is going to have a meltdown. I can easily sleep 10-12 hrs. per night. I am a night person, so if i go to bed at 11:00, I will sleep to 11:00 AM. I don’t feel bad, just that I have to sleep and rest.
  3. I’ve had diabetes for about 20 years and my feet have become more and more numb. Recently, I been getting burning pain in my toes as well. What is going on? What can I do?
  4. I am a 54 year old woman taking Synthroid and a pill to help control my bladder (can’t think of its name). For the last several years, I have had problems after eating. I rarely feel hungry and get a full feeling in stomach after just a few bites. 30 – 60 minutes after eating a meal, I have to run to the bathroom and have diarrhea. Sometimes, I have to go back to the bathroom and have more loose stool. Will just taking fiber help this or is there something more serious happening?
