In brief: Smoking & cancer

Smoking- anytime, anywhere or after any activities- will increase your risk to develop many cancers- including lung cancer, bladder cancer, head and neck cancer, esophageal cancer etc.
It is the cigarette, the amount of cigarettes that you use and how long you have exposed to it that is important, and not the activity that you do before /after/during the smoking. Please consider to quit smoking.
