How fast does melanoma grow?
Posted 4 years ago in Health & Wellness by MoneySpent
The rate at which melanoma grows is dependent upon what type of melanoma a person has. Some melanomas grow slowly and spread out over the outer skin layers, while others may grow more rapidly and into deeper layers of the skin. Another factor is the grade of cancer that a person has. If the cells are extremely abnormal looking, they are considered high-grade and will perform differently than low-grade cancer cells.
Some types of melanoma grow slowly and may spread out into the skin for months or years before they start to grow down into the deeper layers of skin. Other types of melanoma grow down into the deeper layers of skin more quickly.
