I would doubt that you have lung cancer now... you are young and have only been smoking for 2 years... that is awesome that you are quiting be strong and dont give into the cravings!!!! get some packs of gum or candy to have when you feel like you need a smoke... for your chest pain you need to be evaluated by your dr

The answer to your question is that your chance of having lung cancer (as primary cancer) is very remote at your age.

However, that doesn't mean you should ignore these symptoms. A trip to the doctor will either put your mind completely at ease or will give you a needed treatment.

Doubt this is any Lung CA based on the symptoms and your age.  

I would recommend getting a chest xray if this persist.  

I am sure this is NOTHING serious.  

Have you seen a physician at all?
