Yes: If you are referring to blood in the urine or coming out from the penis, it is not uncommon for this to be due to a ruptured vein in the region of the prostate gland (similar to a nosebleed) often associated with straining but should be evaluated further by a urologist. If referring to blood underneath the skin of the penis (hematoma) due to sex/masturbation, this can occur as well.
