Obviously it's impossible to determine exactly what this is without a complete exam.  The fact that it comes and goes suggests it isn't anything too serious.  You'll need to consult a local urologist to find out exactly what this might be.  Such a visit doesn't obigate you to any surgery or anything else but we need to identify the nature of the problem.
