Thickened cecum: Thickened cecum seen on ct may be from infection, inflammation (such as found in crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis), polyps or cancer (rarely) or it may just look thickened on ct. To know for sure, colonoscopy is needed to look at the mucous and rule out things that would need different management (inflammatory bowel disease or cancer).
