Medical Question about cancer

    Hey all,

    It seems that my grandmother may have cancer :frown: We dont know for sure as yet. Because of the poor medical facilities in her country, she will be coming to the US for a biopsy in a few weeks time. My grandma went to a doctor becuase there was a little growth on her face that has increased in size for no reason (its been there for a while). So he is fearing that it may be malignant and recommended a biopsy. So my question is, whats the time frame for this cell division? I mean does happen exponentially or slowly over a period of time?

    It varies from person to person and cancer types. Early detection, is always the best outcome. I wish her the best.
