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

Ask your urologist..: All what you experienced is expected in some patients and results from delayed, but expected in some, complications with scar formation leading to ureteral blockage & high pressure above it. Over time, renal pelvis becomes distended, renal tissue becomes thinning, the wall of renal pelvis & ureter becomes thicker. Oftentimes & to a degree, chronic recurrent UTI may play a role to such appearance. ...Read more

Mom 56 told she has bladder cancer. Friday they removed tumor, Monday they said it had already come back. what stage could it be in? how aggressive?

Miscommunication: Bladder cancer won't grow back that fast after surgery. There is a misunderstanding. It's Mom's task to communicate with her physician, and as much as you love her, you will need to receive all the information about her health via her. Nobody here can second-guess. Bladder cancers range from trivial to very aggressive lesions. Mom may invite you to meet with her physicians if you are caregiver. ...Read more

I used to pee really frequently but recently Ive had trouble peeing like it wont come out what is it could i have bladder cancer?

Urinary retention: Bladder cancer is relatively uncommon in young men. Voiding less could be due to less urine volume from dehydration. Or perhaps uncontrolled diabetes is now controlled. In older men, enlarged prostate can block flow (which can be aggravated by decongestants). Medications w/anticholinergic side effects can decrease bladder contraction so again less push to pee. Review all dietary supplements & meds ...Read more

Bladder (Definition)

Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
