Frequent urination is often indicative of an underlying a medical condition that needs medical treatment. This is the reason in most of the cases; frequency in urination comes with other symptoms that allow a doctor to perform the differential diagnosis.

These other symptoms may include burning sensation while passing urine, pain while urinating, fever, abdominal pain, and urgent need to urinate. There may also be a change in the appearance of the urine. The urine may appear cloudy and have an odor.
