how fast does throat cancer grow?

It depends: In general, the larger the cancer gets, the faster it grows. Think of a snowball. When it’s small and you roll it, it gets a little bigger. When it’s big and you roll it, it gets a LOT bigger. Each tumor type grows at different rates, it throat cancer can be one of the faster ones.
