What cancer cells grow the fastest?



  1. 0 Votes

    All cancer cells grow pretty fast. Depending on how fast the cells divide, and how many of the cells are cancerous, the growing speed of these cells will vary depending on the type of cancer as well. Lung cancer as well as skin cancers can grow very rapidly and are some of the fastest growing cancers.

    Another interesting fact to add to the post above is that fast-growing cancer cells are the reason chemotherapy causes hair loss. Both cancer cells and hair cells grow very quickly, and chemotherapy is designed to target fast-growing cells. The treatment cannot distinguish between the two types of cells, and which are the ones killing your body, so your hair cells are killed just like the cancer cells. Hair loss results, but will stop when the treatments stop as well.
