Hello and welcome to the forum. Very very sorry to hear about your cancer diagnosis. The best information regarding prognosis will come from your physician. There are, of course, statistics. However, no statistic is absolute so many oncologists are reluctant to give answers to things like 'how long will I live'. Type 2 is more aggressive than type one. That it is stage 3 means it has spread outside to surrounding tissue. https://www.healthline.com/health/papillary-urothelial-carcinoma . There is actually good evidence that you will have years but again, please speak to your doctor for more specifics. What type of treatment are you doing?
