A 41-year-old member asked:
Can you please tell me if it's more dangerous for a post-cancer patient to smoke than a person who never had cancer?

NOT GOOD ALL AROUND: Wow this is a tough one because smoking is terrible all around . For instance the obvious is lung cancer. Smoking has a risk of leading to lung cancer but if you have lung cancer, smoking is only going to worsen the situation. I would have to say both are equally not good.
