How long does it take squamous cell carcinoma spread to lymph node. Spot on arm three years. Then grew fast to ugly monster. Already biopsied as scc.

In brief: SCC on arm

Its very rare for a scc on the arm to 'spread' to local lymph nodes.
Surgery is usually curative for most scc, with the possible exception of late stage scc in the head/neck region.

In brief: We'll see

I'm sorry that your cancer was not recognized and treated effectively in a timely way.
These skin squamous cancers are famously slow to metastasize to the nodes, but i hope it can be removed promptly. There's no definite predicting. Best wishes.
