My grandpa was just diagnosed with brain cancer and he is having respitory failure. He has also had prostate and bladder cancer. Can these types of cancers be related to each other?

ask the doctor if his latest cancer is a primary or secondary cancer. if it is a primary brain tumor then no the most likely are not related. if it is a secondary then probably they are related.
