Waiting for prognosus

I have had a tumor removed from my bladder on the 30th December 2015, I have been told it was through the wall of the bladder and it is an aggressive tumor, I finished Radiotherapy 3 weeks ago. I was also told that their is a 90% chance I have secondaries on my lungs, it will be another 4/5 weeks before I have the second scan of the lungs, so I have an anxious wait on results of the Radiotherapy on the bladder and the results on the 2nd scan on my lungs, the lungs have not been treated yet, the Oncologist wanted to wait for the Radiotherapy to finish.

How is bladder cancer connected to lung spots in some people?

In my case the bladder tumor had gone through the bladder wall into muscle tissue allowing secondaries into the blood stream which lodged in my lungs, that is how it was explained to me. My Chemotherapy treatment starts tomorrow at the Belfast Cancer Center.
