There is a sharp pain when I pass a stool. The pain feels like its coming from behind the base of my penis and around my lower abdominal region but don't feel any discomfort at all at any other time. This just started today and happened when I passed a stool about 6 hours ago and recently about 20 min ago.

Thanks for writing back.

I am glad that you have no blood in the stool neither do you have a loose stool.

If this is a onetime occurrence, you could safely disregard it. If it continues pain this way, you probably will have to look more closely at your symptoms. And, in fact it would be ideal to be examined by a General Surgeon.

I hope this helps you.

Take care and get well soon.
