A 40-year-old member asked:

What does incidental mean on ct scan for bladder wall thickening?

Not significant: The bladder was probably only partially filled and so the bladder wall looked a little thick. The radiologist didn't feel the finding was indicative of a real problem.
Dr. Steven Chmielewski

Probably nothing: Incidental findings are things we see on imaging, just because we're looking at the anatomy, and are not related to the primary reason for the study. Most often they are of little concern. Ask your doctor if you should be concerned.
