Hi,
How are you? Urinary frequency and urgency highly suggest urinary tract infection and you may need to have this checked for proper evaluation. A urine test will help confirm the diagnosis. Direct clinical examination will help  rule out urethritis or balanitis,  inflammation of the glans (glands). Drinking plenty of fluids may help. If infection is present, antibiotic management is indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
