Thanks for consulting us.
You are rightly getting alarmed by these symptoms as these can be a sign of some serious underlying pathology. Although most of the time ( up to 90%) underlying pathology is benign but we must try to rule out other grave conditions before reassuring a patient.
I suggest you should see a Gynaecologist, who may suggest you to have a smear test & a pelvic ultrasound depending upon your clinical examination findings.
Your frequent urinary retention. Your Gynecologist will guide you about the line of action ( may be a Renal Ultrasound or X-Ray will be informative).
Hope this answers your concerns please write back if you have any question.
Wish you good health and a nice day.
Best Regards.
