Does Lpr (silent reflux) cause lung cancer and how likely is it? If I take quick deep breathes after eating I hear a little wheeze no allergies too
No: LPR does not cause lung cancer. Unless the acidity of the reflux is quite high (<3.9 pH), it probably would not increase the risk for esophageal cancer either. Do realize that reflux can worsen asthma symptoms and aspiration of stomach content can lead to infection in the lung. By the way, is the wheezing associated with breathing problem? Does it occur when breathing in or breathing out? ...Read more

Other medical problems (like pleurisy) can also cause pain on breathing ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If a person had lung cancer, how long after shortness of breath symptoms appeared would you expect them to start getting sick?
Variable: Lung cancer comes in many forms -- by that I mean virulence, histologic type and varied involvement. An individual can be asymptomatic for a very long time with long cancer, because we have 2 lungs and quite a lot of redundancy. A lot of the lung would have to be compromised to start feeling short of breath; and the power of denial is also pretty strong. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

From what you described, it is unlikely that you have lung cancer. However, it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
