I have been urinating extremely frequently for a while now,

Patient

Q: I have been urinating extremely frequently for a while now, but the last two days have been unbearable. This morning, I have had to urinate 10 times in 3 hours thus far and I'm sure it's going to continue. I do drink a lot of water and I've noticed that the colder the water is, the more frequently I have to urinate. But still, it's getting crazy. It's not like I drink so much water that this should be happening. I drink approximately 150 oz of liquids (water, seltzer) a day. I do not drink caffeine and I only drink alcohol twice a month or so. I do not have diabetes and my sugar levels are normal (just get bloodwork done). Worried a little bit about cancer. I'm 33 years old, male, 200 lbs, 5'11", in fairly good shape, I exercise regularly. It has been going on far too long for it to be a UTI.
