Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)
I have been diagnosed with CLL since 2009. Can you tell me the life expectancy for this disease.?

Welcome to Connect. As you may already know CLL develops very slowly and treatment can keep it under control for many years, which it seems to be doing in your case.
Here is some more detailed information about the outlook of CLL http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/type/cll/treatment/statistics-and-outlook-for-chronic-lymphocytic-leukaemia Please keep in mind that everyone is different and there are many factors that will influence your prognosis for example gender, age, general health and the stage of the cancer.
Do you know what stage of CLL you have?
Not sure I have a Dr. Appt. Friday and I can find out at that time.
