Someone i know will not quit smoking and is stage 3b.. They are in heavy treatment..can this make it worse
Theoretically speaking, it makes worse.  it's hard to say how much worse.
Dear Tina,
I was diagnosed with stage 3b cervical cancer in September. When the Dr.  asked if I was a smoker I had told him that I quit in August. He advised that it was a good thing because smoking can cause not only your treatment not to be as successful but it can also increase your chances of getting lung cancer by 10,000%. And those were his exact words. I am not a professional, just passing along what was told to me.
