Re: how fast does a tumor grow

sorry to have to say, but that does seem fast.

Does your doc know about that? If not, I'd tell him ASAP.

On the other hand, it could just be swollen up from an infection. Is it painful/tender? (That tends more towards infection.) Have you checked yourself thoroughly for others, especially groin and neck? (But also anywhere.)
