The most common reason for burning in the penis would be an infection.  There are a variety of causes, but STDs leading to urethritis would be one of the more common causes.  

To first evaluate this, I would suggest a urinalysis and urethral swab looking for STDs.

If negative, there are some anatomical causes - such as urethral strictures or urethral polyps - that can cause burning.  A referral to a urologist for possible cystoscopy can be considered to more comprehensively evaluate the discomfort.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
