Depends:: Depends on a number of factors, like: the general condition, nutritional status, type of cancer, type of treatment given so far, any complicating factors. Some cancers, like prostate, are slow growing and survival can be for a long time. It also depends on the bone (s) affected by the cancer. Your oncologist should give you a prognosis, as he is aware of his situation.

See below: The chance of you matching a non-sibling individual in order to donate marrow is less than 1 in 1 million. You can register to be on the national marrow donor program. That way, if there is someone out there that needs a marrow donor, you can be found if you are a match. It's very honorable of you to do this. http://www.nmdp.org/.
