    Approximately how long does it take for a mole or lesion to go from Stage 1 to Stage 3 if untreated? Months I’m guessing thanks

    No one knows the answer. Although, a mole that is determined to be nodular melanoma skips the usual biological growth phases and can progress faster to the next stage. Seems everyone is different and each melanoma may have its own special growth factor. But catching it early is always the best practice and skin exams by you and your partner are optimal!
