Re: Im 25, Smoke 1pk per day, could this be lung cancer? Please Help

Even among smokers, 25 is very young for lung cancer. You might be dealing with asthma or some sort of bronchitis or chest infection, though.

The neck and back pain may be unrelated to the lung problem.

Quitting smoking will probably help with your lungs. (I know, you already know that! Still, it is one more reason.)

Go back to the doctor, tell him you still have some lung issues and now noises. If necessary, see a pulmonologist, that is, a lung expert.
