how long does it take for untreated breast cancer to spread to the lymph nodes?

The spread in months: Well it depends on the aggressiveness of the tumor itself since the grading of the tumor is variable. It will be counted in months and not years. In addition the size of the tumor the bigger in size it gets the more likelihood of spread to armpit lymph glands.
