welcome to HCM!
The presence of pus cells in urine is also called pyuria, Increased pus cells reveal some INFECTIVE process in the urinary tract, anywhere from kidney to the bladder.
Foamy urine is likely nothing to worry about if it happens only occasionally and isn't getting progressively more noticeable. It may just mean that you urinated rapidly, maybe with more concentrated urine as in mild dehydration. You could drink more water to see if it goes away. However, persistently foamy urine can be a sign of protein in your urine (proteinuria), which requires further evaluation.
If you're concerned about Prostate cancer,neither pus cells nor foamy urine suggest prostate cancer.
You are suffering from UTI and being diabetic infection takes long time to control,keeping your blood sugar under control helps.
I hope I have answered your query.take care!
