Urinary frequency: Any irritation or obstruction can cause urinary frequency - there doesn't need to be an infection per se. A UTI is the most common cause and can usually be identified by urinalysis. An "overactive bladder is a common diagnosis, but retention of urine is often another common cause. Neurologic irritation can cause frequent voiding and interstitial cystitis/bladder ca, too. Needs to be ruled out.
