Are tumors in the lung usually a result of metastatic cancer?

No. Lung "tumors" may be benign or malignant (=cancer).

Cancers from other primaries (eg breast, colon, etc) may spread (metastasize) to the lung. Read more...
Often. They are either metastatic lesions that spread from other parts of the body, or they are "primary" lung cancers that originated in the lung tissue. Most often if multiple tumors, they would be metastatic lesions, but if there was a single spot seen in a smoker, it may be a primary tumor. Read more...

Knowing if it is adenocarcinoma or squamous may help. But focusing on the forward progress and implementing a plan she wants is the most important thing. A supportive family and a clear goal. Hope this helps. Read more...
Best to use ultrasound. In evaluation of a gallbladder ultrasound is more sensitive than ct. Would recommend reevaluation of the gallbladder with ultrasound. Read more...
Question unclear. A ct scan is not always the best way in which to image the gall bladder, but this is not the most common source of this condition. Right now, rather than worrying about the primary site, your mother needs all the help and support and loving possible.
