Poss urachal abn: One possibility is an abnormality of the urachus, which runs from the belly button to the top of the bladder. In the fetus it is an open pathway. It normally closes off completely prior to birth. If not, it can result in drainage from the belly button, or closed off cysts can form, which then can enlarge or get infected, causing pain.

What could be a pain that extends from belly button down to the penis?

Prostatitis/UTI: Lots of options, but in the absence of any trauma or obvious change to the penis itself, an inflamed prostate can cause you to have pain in your penis. It;s called referred pain. If your doctor examines your prostate and that exam causes the pain to occur, then that is the most likely cause. Hernia, bladder infection, GI problems are also possible. Time to call your doctor!
