In brief: Not common

Bladder cancer typically spreads to regional lymph nodes around bladder first.
At advance stages, it may progress and spread to other abdominal organs (liver, prostate, vagina, uterus, urethra, etc.) but typically not brain.

In brief: Extremely rare

Advanced bladder cancer may go to the lymph nodes, lungs, liver, and bone.
Only in very rare cases does it spread to the brain.
