Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: This is not something serious. it seems like there is tight preputial ring and usually it resolves until the end of puberty,but it may last longer in some cases. YOu should try to pull it back after you lubricate it and do it few times per day during erection. this may stretch foreskin and you wont have problem anymore. However, dont try to force it if it seems to be too difficult. In these cases, you need surgery to repair phymosis which is a routine procedure so visit urologist. This sudden pain is not worrying too. It is probably just urinary stone that passed. If pain persist,you should do urine analysis to rule out urinary infection. WIsh you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards

Brief Answer: hi Detailed Answer: if you can pass urine and there is no blood in urine or dark urine,then this cant be something serious. Take standard painkiller and drink plenty of fluids. If there is pain on the tip of penis,try to wash it with mildly warm chamomile tea.
