After a TURP, patients may see the new onset of blood in the urine. This can occur as a result of prostatic regrowth and new blood vessels may bleed. There is nothing that you can do to stop the bleeding. An evaluation with a Urologist needs to occur as there can also be other causes of urinary tract  bleeding that may not be associated with the previous procedure.

I have had the same problem very occasionally years after TURP and after all the tests and exams the doctor says that he can see nothing serious. I assume that I'm experiencing the same problem related to regrowth of the prostate and new blood vessels (bleeding and clots). Reply

Had a bleed 13 months after having TURP - Is this an indication of regrowth of prostate cells.
