Common Questions and Answers about How fast does throat cancer grow


Avatar n tn How long does it take for cancer to take enffect? I in africa and have just small info on breast cancer. can some one educate me? Cause i discover a small knot in my breast 15yrs ago.
Avatar f tn There is no way to know how long it took to grow. Cysts grow at different rates for different women. You won't know the type of cyst until it is removed. Is it complex? If it is, you should get a consult with a gynecologic oncologist. They have more experience removing large tumors and will be able to handle staging and tumor removal if it is found to be malignant.
Avatar f tn Since then, I am having the same symptoms I had with the larger cyst, only worse this time. How fast can one of these things grow? Any of you had one being monitored that grew fast? I feel like it's pretty big, but can't believe it would grow that much in two months. I'm just so frustrated. I have been dealing non-stop with these problems since April. I've had the big cyst, abdominal wall pain from nerve damage from the surgery and now this new cyst.
Avatar m tn Any lesion or mass that persists in the mouth for more than two weeks requires evaluation by an Oral Surgery. Countless numbers of text books have been written on oral lesions and there are a hundred possible diagnosis. Cancer is of course included in these. Unfortunately, I cannot possibly rendered diagnosis without a clinical exam and biopsy. You should turn your concern into action and promptly call an Oral Surgeon so they may properly evaluate you.
Avatar n tn How quickly would a genital wart grow from the first sign of it appearing? I have read that they continue to grow and if a bump that suddenly appears stays the same size, it is probably not a wart. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I have had a dry cough for 18 years. Every time I go to the ENT he says, 'It hasn't been 5 years. Cancer doesn't grow that fast.' Two weeks ago, I had a lot of phlegm in my throat and when I brought it up, it was bright red blood. This was repeated a few days later. I have since learned on Dr. Oz Show that I have Silent Reflux, similar to GERD, but no heart burn, only constant coughing.
Avatar n tn when does thyroid cancer happens and how? i'm thyroid patient. and i want to know how thyroid cancer is happens.
Avatar f tn Any advise if prostetectomy or radiation is the best way to go? Each treatment has side effects but we want to opt for best treatment. How fast does this cancer grow? Biopsy was done 2 weeks ago. When is the earliest to have treatment? Also what is report actually saying?
Avatar n tn They did a videostrobe of my throat last week. The doctor told me today I had throat cancer. My voice is gone. I had a left side carotid endarectomy 2 days before Christmas. All of my symptoms started after the surgery, like the day after, the sore throat was there when I woke up in ICU. I saw my family doctor, the surgeon who did the endarterectomy and an ENT locally, all said my symptoms were due to the endarterectomy. The first ENT I saw did a scope of my throat and said all was well.
Avatar f tn Does anyone have osteoarthritis and bone spurs? How fast do bone spurs grow? Do they grow on the base of the thumb? I have a lump that is hard (and hurts if I press on it) and about the size of a small pea, that was not there in September. In under 2 months this lump grew, and I want to know if it could it be a bone spur, or a rheumatoid nodule. (I have "diffuse osteoarthritis" in my joints and spine) and I am only 58. Does osteoarthritis manifest like this?
Avatar n tn I just went to the doctor yesterday. In 2004, I had 60% of my thyroid out. The isthmus and the left lobe were removed. Ultrasound yesterday showed my thyroid did indeed grow back and the left lobe is bigger than the right. Now I have to have surgery again. It DOES grow back. It isn't rare but it is uncommon. Lucky me!
Avatar m tn I still have to do 6 weeks of radiation and Chemo. How fast does this cancer grow. It’s been 44 days since my surgery and I’m starting treatment within 30 days of this message. Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn I can also feel another pimple about 2 centi meter away from the original one that is growing fast too. My mom and dad had a history of cancer (lymphoma) and I am worried if this is some thing more than hemangioma. Can you please advise if I should be worried about cancer and how I should proceed for the treatment? can laser be effective? Thank you!
Avatar f tn I would say it could be oral HPV but that this is fairly rare in women and the wart strain does not cause cancer (from what my research indicates). There are about 100 strains of HPV and only a very few cause cancer and warts and neither do both. As always it is best to just go and get tested when in doubt. On the bright side many strains of HPV can be flushed from the body in months to a couple of years.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know how fast a cancerous nodule would grow? also is there a chance that it could spread to nearby lymph nodes without it growing? About 6 months ago I had my 1cm cold solid nodule biopsied(fna). Came back benign foreign body giant cells and hurth cells also said correlation is needed for possible subacute thyroiditis or chronic lymphatic thyroiditis. The fna was done off of the original films not ultrasound guided.
Avatar f tn No, really the norm is 6 months, it should not grow too fast, and maybe not at all, but they must monitor it and if it does grow significantly in 6 months, then they will deal with it then.
464412 tn?1213225852 m no doctor so I have no idea how fast cancer cells or pre-cancer cells grow but seems like I should be checking it more often... what do you think? If cancer cells were starting to brew on one side what does that mean for the other side?
Avatar n tn In a fast moving cancer, it does generate fast, 1 loose cell divides, then those 2 divide and so forth, my daughters scans were clear, then 1 month later there is more cancer, I would say if a person can handle the chemo to take it all the time untill the scans turn out clean for many years later.
