Growth: Of concern would be a growth such as a polyp or cancerous lesion. A urologist is best qualified to review the ultrasound and determine whether a cystoscopy with a biopsy is advisable. A cytology examination of the urine looking for malignant cells could be done, but if negative it still wouldn't rule out a malignant growth and a cystoscopy of the bladder is still the most conclusive test.

Bladder tumor: ultra sound is minimally accurate to evaluate tumors.cystoscopy is better.Stones are easier to interpret.The finding may only be an innocuous fold in the bladder mucosa.Prostatic protrusion could also be an explanation.Cytology and cystoscopy with biopsy would be definitive.
