Unknown: We don't know the exact amount of smoking that increases your risk of the many kinds of cancers which are related to smoking but, we do know that non-smokers are far less likely to develop larynx cancer. Consider the risks of cancer, heart disease, amputations and the expense...It's totally worth it to quit. You can get help from a tobacco cessation group or from your physician.
