How Fast Does A Thymoma Grow
Variable: Different tumors grow at different rates. In general it takes a breast cancer about four years to become palpable from the time of onset. If left untreated a breast cance has an average life span of about four years from the time of diagnosis. These are average figures with wide variations among different tumors and patients. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lots of variety.: The term "spindle cell" sarcoma is a generic descriptive term that doesn't really give enough information. It would be like asking, "i saw a convertible, how fast can it go?" additional testing often reveals exactly what kind of sarcoma, and then once you know that, you can more accurately discuss the prognosis and the treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends on grade: In general, the "grade", or the microscopic features, of bladder cancer will define the rate of growth. High grade cancers grow more quickly than low grade cancers, and are associated with more advanced (high "stage") types of cancer and poorer outcomes compared to low grade cancers which are generally low "stage". However, high grade cancer caught early is treatable and potentially curable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends on size: Cancers grow by each of their cells dividing into 2. How often they divide depends on the cancer and is referred to as the doubling time (dt). The doubling time of typical lung carcinoids averages 400 days. So in one year they will almost double in size. In one year a 1mm carcinoid would grow to almost 2mm BUT a 10 cm carcinoid would grow to almost 20cm, so one grows 1mm & the other 100mm in 1 yr ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How much faster does non seminoma tc grow than seminoma tc? How much will they untreated grow in a year?
This is surprisingly: Complex question. How long it takes for a mass to achieve a given size is highly variable and depends upon the rate of cell cycle progression, growth fraction (% of cells in the tumor that are dividing), rate of cell death that balances emergence of new cells, etc. Some cancers grow rapidly (eg., burkitt lymphoma) while others may take years to achieve comparable size.
