Hi welcome to HCM.
Focal bladder wall thickening may be either benign like myomas or any malignant conditions. You need to evaluate it in details. Ask your doctor for either CT abdomen or cystoscopy with biopsy for exact diagnosis.
Solitary pulmonary nodule may be just a infective granuloma or hamartoma or neoplasm. HRCT THORAX investigation of choice to rule out differential.
This advice is based on your description only. For complete evaluation please attach reports or xrays with query.

Hope I have answered your query.

thank you.
you not mention the physical problem like cough,fever,weight loss,hemoptysis,burning micturition,abdominal pain or passage of red urine.
a single nodule in the lungs have many differential diagnosis like TB,pneumonia,malignancy or metastatic from other tumor(kidney,bladder etc).
according to clinical features some other inv. may be needed like CT scan of chest or bronchoscopy.
for proper evaluation consult an internal medicine specialist.
