Not necessarily: Air bubbles when urinating implies a connection between the bladder and the colon (colovesical fistula), often seen with diverticular disease, and with advanced colon cancer. If there is a lot of bubbles in the bowl following urination, it may be normal, or may suggest increased amount of protein being voided.
