Infection in urine: Uti means infection somewhere in your urinary tract. The most common is in the bladder but could be in the kidney as well. Symptoms include flank pain, urinary pain, urinary urgency, cloudy urine and blood tinged urine. This requires immediate attention - see your family doctor for diagnosis and proper treatment.

Urinary infection: Uti: infection of the urinary tract, also called cystitis or bladder infection. Typical symptoms include increased urgency and frequency of urination, blood in urine, incontinence, pain with urination and cloudy urine. Diagnosis is easy. A urinalysis and urine culture can be done by your pcp or walk-in clinic. If your urinalysis is suspicious for infection, they will start you on antibiotics.
