Sorry: His doctor, who has access to much more information, can give you the best estimate. Remember that these things can be hard to predict because everyone's cancer is a bit different and it depends a lot on how he responds to treatment. The survival times docs give are often only averages or estimates and should be used to help prepare for the worst while still keeping hope that you will do better.
