Urinalysis: This is an abnormal urinalysis but it could be contaminated by vaginal contents if it wasn't a clean catch specimen. If it was a clean catch, further studies like urine culture, urine cytology,kidney and bladder ultrasounds and urology consultation would be in order.

In other ways.: The development of bladder cancer has little to do with the frequency of urination. It has everything to do with changes to the lining of the bladder, mostly due to exposure to toxins in the urine, such as from cigarette smoke & industrial chemicals. Inherited genetic factors play a role as well. For those that have developed bladder cancer, one of the symptoms can be frequent urination.
