Patient Comments: Cancer Risk Factors - Tobacco

Did/do you smoke or chew tobacco and have been diagnosed with cancer? Please share your experience.

Comment from: Edray, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: December 27

I am presently being treated for stomach cancer in the late stage. Hopefully chemotherapy will send it into remission. I smoked for 2 years like a pack every 2 days. Any amount of tobacco use puts you at risk.
