Upper limit: Of normal for bladder thickness is 5-6 mm. Thickening can occur from multiple causes. From your symptoms i would suspect increased internal bladder pressure from prostate enlargement (causing the wall to thicken) or inflammation/infection of the bladder (cystitis). A urologist can help sort this out.
