Cancerous tumors grow bigger by definition. They can get smaller with treatment radiation/chemo.

Speaking from experience, no they do not get smaller without treatment, if they are just under the skin surface they feel like a hard lump (no pain) and have a very deep itchy sensation that you cant scratch away, mine when I found it was the size of a pencil eraser and within 2 months when I went for the 1st of 3 removals it was x5 the size. If it changes size chances are its a cyst.
