How fast does throat cancer progress w/o treatment?

I have off and on episodes of hoarsness, particularity in the morning--not everyday. If this isn't due to "old" age (I'm 67), what is the normal time progression of throat cancer (e.g., 1st symptoms of hoarsness,  to really something obvious) , or where can I go to find info on this??

go on line and type in throat cancer.  I doubt you have that, you are just having the normal age thing.  I get that, and i'm 56.

my brother (who is 46) started having sore throats over a year ago, and was visiting doctors who did not run the right tests. Then finally this May, he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer (HPV). It was an x-ray technicial who saw something on his slides, not a doctor. They said if they had diagnosed it correctly when he first went to the doctor he would have been at stage 1 and easily treatable.

See an Ear, Nose and Throat Dr., this is where we started and correctly diagnosed my husband.  The sooner the better.
