HI . RAD CAN BE A NORMAL VARIANT ALSO . BUT SINCE YOU NEVER HAD IT IN YOUR PREVIOUS ECG CAN BE SIGNIFICANT . SMOKING CAUSES LUNG PROBLEMS AND RIGHT HEART CAN STRAIN AGAINST IT . BETTER TO GET AN ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY DONE TO SEE THE STATUS OF YOUR RIGHT VENTRICLE . IF ITS IN NORMAL RANGE . NO NEED TO WORRY THEN . WISH YOU GOOD HEALTH AND KEEP UP . NEVER START SMOKING AGAIN .
