See answer: Urine odor can depend of many things including hydration level, food or medication, infection or even systemic illness. It alone is uncommonly a cause for concern in the absence of any other symptoms or signs. A checkup and urinalysis would help determine if there is an abnormality, but it is unlikely to be a sign of disease.

Depends what you: The smell of urine is due to what you eat. Have you eaten popcorn recently? You can see your physician to see if there are other issues.
