Hi. I have a sharp pain at the tip of my penis when I urinate or ejaculate. The pain feels like it is coming from inside the urethra at the very tip of the penis and only when the urine reaches the tip. It started 2 days ago. The pain was not too bad before but is very strong now. Very sharp pain. Once the initial pain occurs, the pain subsides slowly while urinating. There is no discharge and I am in a monogomous relationship. After urinating there is no pain but if I squeeze the tip around the urethra, it is slightly sore. There is no visible indication of anything wrong but the opening of the penis is slightly red. Please advise.
