Is frequent urination a symptom of cancer?

Hi,
I am a 28-year old lady. I have been urinating frequently especially at night. I was diagnosed with diabetes in January 2012. My FBS test (last month) result was 119 and I had stopped taking my Metformin for over 3 months prior to the test date. Is frequent urination in any way a symptom of cancer.

Hi there,
Frequent urination can be a symptom of bladder cancer. But it is a less common cause. I would suggest you seek advice from the doctor who is treating you for your diabetes.
All the best
