In brief: Metastatic bladder
You need to see a medical oncologist to plan your care.
Is the lung mets proven to be bladder ca ? Have you had chemo ? Did you have your bladder removed. Medical oncology is your first stop.

In brief: Depends
You may need a thoracic surgeon to do biopsies to confirm the diagnosis or possibly remove the metastasis .
.. But the urologist may be the one to treat you with chemotherapy or other medical therapy, unless they prefer that you be treated by a medical oncologist.

In brief: Urologist
The physician who is going to oversee your bladder cancer treatment is the urologist.
There really is no role for a thoracic surgeon since these masses are not removed surgically. The mainstay of treatment at this point is chemotherapy and not surgical.
