Brief Answer: Please clarify about stent. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have a stent . I shall be happy if you can repost me the position of stent whether it is placed in Ureter or Urethra? What is the reason (Disease) for placing the stent ? It is very unlikely for the stent to get dislodged. The pain in penis could be due to inflammation of the urethra as a foreign body reaction which can be controlled with pain killers . Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil
