Yes: After a prostate biopsy, one can expect to have blood in the urine, stool, and sperm. These are usually self-limited and need no special treatment. Increase your fluid intake and monitor. If there is any pain, fevers, or heavy bleeding, call you urologist immediately.

Yes: Blood in urine for up to 48 hours is usual. If you have blood in urine one week after the biopsy, contact your doctor. Wish you good health!
