Persistent cough. History of lung cancer. Have nodules in lung. Caused by smoke in walls?

I moved into the apartment I live in now about 3 yrs. ago. About the same time I developed a cough which was very persistent. The tenant who lived here before me smoked like a trouper one cigarette after another I was tolled. My apartment was painted and new carpet. But not to long after I moved here I could see the smoke coming through the paint. Last October 2011 we found out that I had lung cancer and they removed half of my left lung. I was declared cancer free. Recently they found nodgels in both my left and right lung. Could the smoke that is hidden in the walls have anything to do with it?
