Linus Posted November 15, 2004 Share Posted November 15, 2004 at how young of an age lung cancer can strike. I am shocked at the ages of lung cancer patients. I am 35 and I smoked since I was 16 or so. I quit a couple of months ago when my mother was DX with lung cancer (stage 4). I always thought I was too young for that disease. I figured that it does not strike untill one is older. How wrong I was! I am thanking God that I already chose to quit. I just wish I would have done it years ago. The funny thing is that it isn't as hard as I thought it would be. I just hope that I have not chosen to quit too late. Sheesh, sorry for such a gloomy post. I am sitting here contemplating what the median age is for lung cancer so I can preach to my smoking friends and husband! May good health find all of you, Linus Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
