Cyst in kidneys, multiple lymph nodes, fibromyalgia. CT scan shows distended urinary bladder. Related symptoms?

I had a ct scan that states urinary bladder is midly distended what does that mean? Showed a cyst in my Kidney 1.6 cm. and i have multiple small mesenteric nonspecific lymph nodes present. I have been in pain for about 9 months (like the flu) which my doctors have been treating me for fibromyalgia . Just wondering if all of this could be related?

Hi and welcome to HCM. Urinary bladder holds the urine that flows down from your kidneys (you may be knowing that). Hence, unless you have emptied your bladder by passing urine just prior to the scan, it is normal for it to be containing some urine and hence 'distended'. One or two odd 'simple' cysts in the kidneys are a normal feature and nothing to worry about. These two have noting to do with 'Fibromyalgia'. With regards to your other health issues (fibromyalgia in particular), it would help to know more about you and details of your symptoms and tests before giving any opinion. Best wishes. RB
