What is the difference between bubbles in urine and foam in urine? Please explain in some detail! Thanks a bunch.

I would consider bubbles and foam as the same thing. Foam might be considered smaller bubbles and more organized bubbles. Bubbles and foam may be seen in normal urine and is often seen in the toilet bowel before flush. When there is excess protein in the urine because of kidney disease, the bubbles and foam are often more prominent and noticeable. They often will not flush away as easily and can be noticed in the bowl even after flushing.
