In brief: Depends
There are several different types of squamos cell carcinomas, scc.
For instance scc of the skin is not aggressive and very rarely spreads rapidly to lymph nodes. Scc of the lung is very aggressive and spreads rapidly.

In brief: Varies with type
In the case of squamous cell cancer of the skin, it may take months or longer, whereas squamous cell cancer of the lung may have already spread to lymph nodes when first detected.
