Brief Answer: Symptoms are not due quiting smoking. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for follow up. Urge to pass urine is not due to quitting smoking. Ultrasound scanning is not costly affair it may cost few U.S dollars You can try urinary anti spamodics like Flavoxate for couple of days and if there is no improvements in symptoms you can go foe scanning. Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.
