Brief Answer:
Hello. The chances are high

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through the details. Bladder tumors are vascular tumors with high propensity to enter the musculature. Since its a big tumor, more chances of invading into the muscle. However, that will only be decided after biopsy or surgery. Post surgery, chemotherapy is also a part of treatment.
Thanks and regards
