How fast does Squamous Cell Carcinoma spread?

I noticed a red patch on my calf last July 2001. It was biopsied in January 2002 and found to be Squamous Cell Carcinoma in situ (local) otherwise known as Bowen's Disease. I can't get in to see a local surgeon until the end of February and can only hope to be scheduled for surgery in March 2002. My dermatologist thinks this is fine but I can't help wondering at what point this will spread and if the biopsy itself will break the barrier in the layer of skin and allow the cancer to spread more easily.
