Does age matter?

I just wanted to know if smoking induced lung cancer can strike at any age?

I'm 24 and have been getting pain's in my chest. I smoke like 20 a day and have been since I was 15. I'm stressed out! Is this likely?

My Dad was just diagnosed with Lung Cancer a month ago. He never had chest pain. Just congestion that seems to have lasted for many months. You should probably see a doctor about your chest pain. And quit smoking.
