  • Hi Deepali,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on the Community. In response to your question, a malignant process doesn't last for such long. It might be a benign tumor which may be growing slowly over this period. An MRI scan and a biopsy may help confirm the diagnosis. Please proceed to get the following done. In case of any other queries do let us know. Take care and best of luck.
