In brief: See a doctor
If you have lung cancer you should see a board certified thoracic surgeon and/or medical oncologist to discuss therapeutic options based on the clinical stage of the cancer.

In brief: Nicotine accelerates
A complex question, no simple answer. Lung cancer survival depends on type and stage.
In a recent study, early stage adenocarcinoma lung cancer patients able to quit nicotine had survival 2x as high as patients unable to quit. Nicotine addiction accelerates mortality and weakens your overall health as you fight this cancer. Don't give up, you can quit nicotine, and fight the cancer.

In brief: Variable
It would depend on the stage of cancer, type of cancer, treatment given, response to treatment, other illnesses or diseases in the person.
More than half the patients with lung cancer are gone within a year of the diagnosis.
