asthma, past smoking and lung cancer risk
I am a 66 year old male with a lifelong history of asthma. I understand that the asthma increases my lung cancer risk but I don't know how much. I also smoked for 9 years, 1 1/2 packs a day, but stopped 36 years ago at the age of 30. I don't know how much this increases my risk either. I would consider having low-dose screening CTs if I were at significantly elevated risk. Any thoughts about risk in someone with my history? Thank you.
