What should I do whenever my 18 month old son urinates his penis bulges and cries ?

my son is now 18 months old and whenever he urinates his penis bulges, not sure if he is having the problem from birth , but i m noticing this from around he is 10 months old. Doesn t cry when he urinates. But in recent days, he wakes up from sleep and cries when he has to urinate (not always, some days). What is his problem actually and what needs to be done???
