Brief Answer: Prostate inflammation. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Trace of blood in the urine usually appears due to urinary tract infection. Same blood after ejaculation indicates prostate issues like inflammation or hyperplasia (enlargement). Diabetes is a risk factor of urinary tract infection and makes it more possible at your case. You may also have occasional stabbing pain in the rectum or groin area, lower abdominal pain. As a trace of blood in the urine can be the first symptom of urinary bladder cancer, you should not ignore such symptom. I suggest you to visit your doctor, have urine analysis and PSA level checked. If no infection, or PSA will be elevated, you should consult urologist and consider prostate biopsy. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.

Brief Answer: . Detailed Answer: When was all this tests performed? Was there a transrectal ultrasound done? Any cystoscopy? Have you had testis check up? Urinary tract infection can appear in a day so if your urine tests were done before blood has showed up, still infection is present. To diagnose prostate inflammation, urine analysis after prostate massage is necessary. Was it done too? Regards.
