A CT or sonogram most of the time will not pickup bladder tumors. Cystoscopy is the best way to do this. Also, for your frequency of urination, you may have some overactive bladder. This sometimes responds to medications such as detrol LA. You should discuss this with your urologist. Hope this helps.

i was hoping for a more complete answer, as to the reason my abdoman might be hard(could this be a very large tumor im feeling?could my bladder have dropped down or something...why do i feel this pressure on my bladder when im standing or walking?
Expert:  Urologist,M.D. replied 4 years ago.
No, it is not from a tumor or your bladder dropping. It may be from your bladder spasming and being overactive. A test called urodynamics can evaluate this.
