In brief: Many things

Stage IV lung cancer with bloody urine can mean many things.
It could be due to the presence of a metastatic tumor in the bladder or the kidney. Please also note whether or not you are on a blood thinner. In uncommon case, it could also indicate the presence of a primary bladder tumor (though i doubt in this case). Bladder inflammation or infection could also be the cause. Check with your doctor.
