Bleeding after Prostate Biopsy?

Answer

Most men will have bleeding after prostate biopsy. This bleeding can last up to 5 days and is normal. Bleeding into the urethra or bladder is cause for concern. because it can cause a hemotoma to form, causing an inability to urinate or having to urinate often. If you have a transrectal biopsy, you may experience a small amount of bleeding from your rectum for 2 to 3 days after the biopsy, and this is normal. Infections are rare since antibiotics are administered before the biopsy to keep infections from occurring.
