    I don't know how long tumours take to grow, but I think most of them develop over quite some time. Four years of visiting the hospital without being diagnosed does sound rather extreme though. I have fairly advanced Stage C3 bowel cancer and have been told that it had been growing without any real symptoms for a long time. They never actually tell you how long "a long time" is though!!
    I hope you are now getting the care and treatment it sounds as if you should have got years ago.
