Brief Answer:
Hydrocele

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

As far as your sperm analysis report is concerned, you have nothing to be worried about. The pus cell, red blood cell (RBC) and epithelial cells are within normal range while in infection, it increases.

Secondly, as per your ultrasound report, you have hydrocele. You need to visit your doctor [Urologist] and if it is causing any problem then please discuss surgical procedure like [hydrocelectomy]. It is a minor surgical procedure.

Hope that clears your doubt. Feel free to ask further questions.

Brief Answer:
Hydrocele

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

As far as your query is concerned, the normal range of RBC in seminal fluid is [0-4] so as you have only [1-2]. It is normal and it does not indicate that you have any infections. It happens to everyone.

Hope that clears your doubt. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
Hydrocele

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

As far as your doubt is concerned, blood in semen is not normal, of this I am sure. Now, at present, you have no infection and your ultrasound report indicate that your prostate size is normal and no abnormal growth is present, therefore, we have ruled out the most common day to day pathological disorders. In my opinion, discuss this with your urologist to do a cystoscopy alone. If it is normal, there is nothing to be worried at all.

Hope that helps.
