By quitting smoking, you have done the best thing possible to reduce the chance of developing lung cancer
or other type of cancer.
Lung cancer risk among female smokers who have quit smoking decreases with increasing duration of smoking abstinence.
Studies have shown that there is more than 50% reduction in risk of lung cancer in the first decade of smoking abstinence for female former smokers as compared with current smokers
And the risk drops more with every smoke free year you complete.
Similarly, there is reduction in risk of developing other types of cancer associated with adverse effects of smoking
like cancer of oral cavity, larynx
, stomach, bladder, etc.
Wishing you a Good Health. Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
