1 doctor agrees

In brief: Low

Need more info. It is more common in heavy sm9ker abovevage of 50.
It is not impossible though to have lung cancer at young age but i would rule out more common problems such an infection etc. It also depends on the duration and the quantity of smoking. In anyway, i would recommend to followup with your doctor.
