In brief: Not cancer

I'm really glad you quit smoking.
Ask your personal physician about a referral to an otolaryngologist and a dentist who's gum-savvy. I'm going to trust your routine labs, including platelets, are within normal limits. Cancer almost never results from just 8 years of smoking at your age.
