How Long Does It Take For Tumor To Grow In Breast
Brain tumor: This is an extremely complex question. Brain tumors come in many different types and based on the cell origin can be extremely slow growing taking years to become large and symptomatic versus the more malignant which can double in size in a matter of months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
Varies: Breast buds are one of the first signs of puberty. Usually the time from start to finish in puberty is about 3 - 4 years. This can be prolonged though in people with lower estrogen. Girls under physiologic stress would see this. Very thin and "over exercised" would fit this category. Puberty then often starts late and takes longer. High levels of exercise in girls is not so positive! ...Read more
Breast cancer: That is a very unusual place for breast cancer to spread to. In general if breast cancer spreads, the most common organs it spreads to are the lungs, liver, bones, and brain. This can occur at any time around the diagnosis of the breast cancer, but is mostly likely within the first 2 years. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
~48hrs: Most basic pathology results from a biopsy should be available in ~48hrs. The tissue needs to fix in formalin for a particular amount of time (6hrs-overnight) then be processed, slides made and stained, then interpreted. Each of these steps takes time. Additional staining or deeper cuts for furthe evaluation/markers may add another day before the full results are back. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Roughly one year: The immunogenic tumor protein, a post translational modification of MUC5ac is found in most colon Ca. When polyoma enters bowel to form a field effect, one site will develop a Ca. If resected and premalignant normal appearing cells which express MUC 5ac are left behind, suppression is eliminated and one of the foci, staining + for MUC5ac will grow and replace anastomosis in about 1 yr. ...Read more
Varies: Different tumors grow a dfferent rates however the start small like with a single abnormal cell and the cells reproduce at a rate faster than normal cells and no not die at the same rate as normal cells. This eventually leads to exponential or near exponential growth. In other words, they take a long time to get to a certain size but after they get there they grow more quickly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can occur: Unfortunately - this review below suggests 20% at 2y. https://academic.oup.com/humupd/article/15/4/441/732833/Recurrence-of-endometriosis-and-its-control However other reasons for pain include adhesions, new conditions in the ovary/womb (or other structures in the pelvis) and development of a chronic pain disorder. So worth if you are experiencing pain after endometriosis treatment to see a doc ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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. Why do you ask? ...Read more
Depends: There ars several different cancerous cell types. Some are fast growing and aggressive, while others are slow growing and less aggressive. There are widespread facts on each type available, but a diagnosis from biopsy is needed to answer your question accurately! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Actually`: Some believe that it takes only the time for a SINGLE CELL which has MUTATED (or produced by an abnormal strand of RNA/DNA to START tumor formation. As to how long it takes for SYMPTOMS to occur THAT depends upon the LOCATION of the TUMOR and whether it IRRITATES surrounding tissue ("produces" a siezure) Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more
Many centers are: Accelerating biopsy to 'read out' times. Many recognize the problem with "presenteeism" being at the desk or counter, but unable to focus while worryig about the "report". You need to ask "how long wil the report take" and then ask why does it take so long, and ask for the time off of the lag time from biopsy to path report. Some can do it in 24-48hrs. There is no recovery time. ...Read more
Several yrs: The more common skin lesions are relatively slow in terms of mets. Basal cell rarely spreads, squamous cell with time can be aggressive and spread to nodes. Melanoma as it transforms from the nevus to the nodular and then ulcerating melanoma can then spread to any known organ in the body. The angiosarcomas and Kaposi sarcoma can become very aggressive. All lesions when treated early are cureable ...Read more
It depends on what i: Benign tumors typically do not grow. But it depends on where it is located and what does your doctor think it is? A careful physical examination by your doctor is necessary to be sure that it is indeed benign as it is often difficult to tell the difference beween benign and malignant(this one grows in size as you watch it). I would be cautious and seek a second opinion and request an imaging test. ...Read more
