What does it mean when urine looks foamy?

Passing foamy urine now and then is normal, for the speed of urination and other factors can influence this.

Should I be concerned if it doesn't go away after a few days?

You should see your doctor if you have persistently foamy urine that becomes more noticeable over time. This can be a sign of protein in your urine (proteinuria), which requires further evaluation. Increased amounts of protein in urine could mean you have a serious kidney problem.

If your urine seems unusually foamy most of the time, your doctor may recommend a urine test to check for elevated levels of protein. If the test is positive, you may need further tests to determine the cause of the problem

If your urine is foamy, look for other symptoms as well. These symptoms could be clues that a medical condition is causing the problem:
* swelling in your hands, feet, face, and abdomen, which could be a sign of fluid buildup from damaged kidneys
* fatigue
* a loss of appetite
* nausea
* vomiting
* trouble sleeping
* changes in the amount of urine you produce
* cloudy urine
* darker colored urine

Foamy urine may not be a problem if it happens every once in a while. If it continues, it could be a sign that you have kidney damage. Usually, this symptom appears late in kidney disease, so immediate treatment is important.
