Emission of semen due to illness does not require ghusl

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I understand one of the causes that make ghusl a must are:

1. The emission of semen, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "What requires water (ghusl) is if you see water (i.e., semen) coming out of you." (Reported by Muslim, no. 1/269) .

My question is: like my case sometimes I see semen emitting with my urine and I confirmed that it is a semen as recently I have done a medical check and found trace of semen in my urine. Is it compulsory for me to perform ghusl when I see semen emit with my urine?
I am really appericiate this website because a lot of the questions
and answers make me more convinced to practice Islam in my life.

Thank you very much

Praise be to Allaah.

The emission of semen due to enjoyment or a "wet dream" requires ghusl, but if semen is emitted in the urine or because of sickness, with no pleasure involved, this does not require ghusl. All you have to do is clean yourself properly after passing urine or stools, and perform wudoo’ before praying. This is sufficient,
