How long does it take for a brain tumor to grow large?

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.
Depends. For more benign tumors such as meningioma, many years. For malignant brain tumors such as glioblastoma, a few months.

Depends on type. The type and grade of the tumor will determine the growth rate. If the brain tumor is benign, it may grow slowly for months to years before causing symptoms (ie. Meningioma). If the tumor is malignant or aggressive, it will grow rapidly over about 6-12 weeks. Manifestation of symptoms depends on location. If it is adjacent to areas that control movement or speech, the symptoms are seen sooner. Read more...
