sharp pain, at one point there was blood in urine

User Profile
When I was about 12 or 13, for the space of about a week I had some fairly sharp pain that as best as I can describe originated in my penis (I was young so its hard to remember). Masturbation seemed to somewhat help with the pain.
The main thing that concerns me was the fact that at one point when I urinated, it was quite painful and there was blood in my urine. I have been fine ever since. Any idea what this could have been?

Welcome to ehalthforum,
Painful urination with presence of blood in urine could suggest urinary tract infection or urinary calculus or cystitis etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/urologist for further examination evaluation clarification and assistance. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/urologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
