You haven't been smoking long so I doubt if you've built up congestion in your lungs.  Do you have a smoker's cough?  If you do then it may show up...but unlikely.

I want to give you a little advice.  Quit now...just quit while you still can.  I started when I was 17....and here I am at 55 desperately needing to get off of them...but one addiction at a time.

Do they look for smoking in the Navy?  Sorry I'm kind of ignorant on this issue.  When my father was in the forces everyone smoked everywhere including in hospitals.

No I don't have congestion in my lungs neither I have any cough but my main concern is that do x rays show the carbon in lungs.
