Thanks for using HealthcareMagic
It is understandable to be scared but most commonly the symptoms are not due to a life threatening condition. You would need to be seen for physical examination and assessment of the urine.
The most common causes would be an infection of some aspect of the urinary tract or enlargement of the prostate.
The urinary tract includes- urethra, prostate, kidney, bladder, ureter. If an infection is present then antibiotics would be given to improve the symptoms.
I hope this helps
