In brief: Okay!

It doesn't matter specifically whether you use menthol or non-menthol cigarettes.
What does matter is how many cigarettes you smoke, when you started smoking, the brand of cigarettes & how long you've been smoking. Menthol cigarettes may be worse because they are "tolerated" better or "enjoyed" more, encouraging heavier and or earlier use. Don't say I didn't NOT say that lol.

In brief: Neither is worse

Hi. And BOTH are TERRIBLE.
What do you expect a group of physicians to tell you??? QUIT while you're young before it's too late!
