What causes stabbing pain on the penis?

Hi I experienced a sharp intense stabbing pain starting from what felt like a tube behind the base of my penis on the right hand side. It spread to the tip of my penis and the right testicle with each pain, this was every few seconds or so regardless but was more intense/frequent if touching my lower abdomen or the penis and testes. It has stopped for now but I keep getting a very mild form of it like a kind of echo of the pain. What could this be?
