Question second-hand smoke??

What are the possibilities of catching lung cancer from second-hand smoke? I've lived with my mom my whole life-(my father passed away from lung cancer 15 yrs ago-he too was a smoker). Cher

Well it would definately increase the odds but there is no way to guess because there are to many variables.

I don't know if I have ever read any numbers related to 2nd hand smoke and don't even know if they have any statistics on your question. I do know you can get lung cancer many ways. Just listen to your body if you have a concern.
