I am writing to make patients with Lung Cancer THAT WERE SMOKERS aware of something that I was not,
That BLADDER CANCER can develop as a second cancer to people that already have Lung Cancer.
The largest group of people that get Bladder Cancer are MEN OVER 65 WHO WERE SMOKERS.
My husband who had Stage III NSCLC found out suddenly that he had BLADDER CANCER too.
Not metastatic, but a second primary cancer. It turns out that the Lung Cancer treatment worked,
but Unfortunately, now his Bladder cancer is Stage Iv. I did not have Bladder Cancer on my radar, but
I wish I knew about it.
