Bleeding from penis tip after urinating, injured testicles. Cause of worry?

My 9 year old son informed me that tonight after he urinated, he noticed a single droplet of blood come out of the tip of his penis . What could this be? He was very frightened by it. Recently he took a hit to his testicles, not sure if that would have anything to do with blood from the penis just thought it may be good to tell you.

Hello dear...
Blood in the tip of penis may be due to:
1. Trauma to the uro-genital tract
2. Urinary tract infection

Investigations like urine examination and if needed an ultrasound scan of the testicular area will be helpful in clinching the diagnosis. will be better to consult an Urologist to find out the exact cause.
So that necessary management steps could be taken.

Wishing your son a Good Health. Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
