Can a person's lungs heal if they were a long time smoker?

And will they survive?

  1. Hi thanks for reaching out. We are not medical professionals and each person's health and medical history is unique, so this is a hard question for us to answer. I would encourage you to speak to your doctor about this, if you haven't done so already, as they would know your personal medical background the best. In the meantime, I am sending over this article, I hope it is helpful. Jill, lungcancer.net team https://lungcancer.net/living/rewards-quitting-smoking-nutshell

    1. I also encourage you to have this discussion with your doctors. I was getting ready to post an article for you, but I see Jill already posted it. If you scroll down, there is a section on the health benefits of quitting. Please know this community is here to support you, reach out anytime. Wishing you all the best, Alisa, Lung Cancer Team Patient Leader

      1. Wishing you the very best in this journey. We're here for support if you need it.
