Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding.

Could a "full" bladder on CT with contrast of abdomen & pelvis be confused or misread as bladder cancer/tumor/problems?

Could a "full" bladder on CT with contrast of abdomen & pelvis be confused or misread as bladder cancer/tumor/problems?

Probably Not: Part of the intent of using contrast on a ct scan of the pelvis is to "fill the bladder" this allows us to see if there is thickening of the bladder walls, or filling abnormalities among other things. It's unlikely that a full bladder represents problems, unless the problem is one of emptying the bladder. Then a reason must be sought if the bladder doesn't empty normally. ...Read more

When I wake up in the middle of the night my back hurts when I take a deep breath, could this be caused by a full bladder?

Yes, possible VUR: Having a full bladder may cause lower back pain. For example, there is a condition called vesicouretral reflux (vur) in which urine "backs up" from the full bladder through the ureters and into the kidneys. It can be diagnosed via ultrasound and other procedures. More information: http://kidney.Niddk.Nih.Gov/kudiseases/pubs/vesicoureteralreflux/#what. Good luck! ...Read more
