Can heavy smoking for 1 year give you lung cancer(squamous cell lung cancer)?

yes. everyone is different. some people die fast some people might not get cancer at all from smoking

Yes. But there's no certainty in anything.

Sure, genetics can give you lung cancer, chemicals can give you lung cancer, the smog you breath in can give you lung cancer. You know the surgeon generals warns that smoking can cause lung cancer, yet he fails to recognize that thousands of non smokers get lung cancer every year.

Anyways, if you're worried about it, go to the doctor.

People can get lung cancer w/o ever having smoked. Your chances are more if you smoke, less if you don't, but you can still get it.

Some people can smoke once and get cancer. Some people can chain smoke for thirty years and have healthy lungs. But those are the outliers. But the answer is yes, it CAN.

A general rule to follow is don't smoke, the more you smoke the more likely you are to
A: Have cancer,
B: Have worse and worse and worse cancer.

People who have never smoked may get lung cancer. So for sure, smoking heavily (even if it's just for a year) can give you lung cancer (or another disease because lung cancer is not the only disease associated to smokers).

On the other hand, they are other factors that come to hand such as how long have you smoked, your genetic, your health, your age, etc.
