Dr. Michael Thompson
Hematology and Oncology 20 years experience
It depends: Breast cancer invasive ductal carcinoma (idc) "spread" rate depends on multiple factors including: cancer size, location, biologic characteristics, when found, therapy.
Dr. Devon Webster
Medical Oncology 22 years experience
It depends: Tumors that are grade 3, or that have a high "proliferation rate", may spread more quickly than grade 1 or 2. Tumors that are er- (estrogen receptor negative) or her2+ spread more quickly than other types. Inflammatory breast cancer of any type can spread in days; the other types of invasive ductal carcinoma generally take months.

Yes: Depending on the stage, untreated it will definitely spread, if caught early and treated, then less likely, but monitoring for a long time (5-10 years) is necessary.
