• If I smoke a cigarette a year will I get lung cancer?

    Best answer: While smoking will increase your risk of getting lung cancer, especially in the short-term... it's going to be negligible compared to non-smokers in the long-term due to the infrequency of your smoking. There will always be a trace amount of risk due to smoking, but your frequency (averaging one per year) is... show more
    Best answer: While smoking will increase your risk of getting lung cancer, especially in the short-term... it's going to be negligible compared to non-smokers in the long-term due to the infrequency of your smoking. There will always be a trace amount of risk due to smoking, but your frequency (averaging one per year) is making it insignificant compared to those with higher frequencies (like once per month or once per week... & definitely compared to those who smoke 1 or more daily).

    Other factors like your environment & genetic history will likely play a greater impact on your risks for lung cancer as you're minimizing risks from smoking.


    Hope this helps!

  • Acid reflux that won't go away?

    Best answer: The symptoms you describe sound like far more than just acid reflux. You need to visit your doctor to get a proper diagnosis. If it is in fact just acid reflux then there are many different medications you can use to treat it, but if you are dealing with something else entirely then you can't rely on self... show more

  • Why do I pee so much?

    Best answer: There are MANY reasons for frequent urination. You didn't mention HOW MUCH urine comes out each time you pee. Diabetes does NOT cause peeing very 5 to 10 minutes. Diabetes DOES cause a full bladder to happen several times a day and even several times each night which can result in needing to pee an average... show more
    Best answer: There are MANY reasons for frequent urination. You didn't mention HOW MUCH urine comes out each time you pee. Diabetes does NOT cause peeing very 5 to 10 minutes. Diabetes DOES cause a full bladder to happen several times a day and even several times each night which can result in needing to pee an average of once per hour during the day and two to four times at night in many cases, but NOT every 5 to 10 minutes. Diabetes can develop in two years, but peeing every several minutes is not likely being caused by diabetes.

    It is far more likely to be a UTI, an overactive bladder, or an issue with the kidneys.

    I'm 19 and have never had a job. I have Asperger's syndrome, and I have extreme social anxiety, and I have thought of myself as not as good as normal people. I am well educated. I got good grades. But if people are involved, I am as smart as a bag of rocks. I have always thought myself as inferior since early childhood, and have had depression for most of my life, having first attempted suicide at age 10. I am not looking for people's pity like a spoiled brat, and I'm not going to try ending my life again, but I just want to know what I should do with my life? There must be something.

  • Can my Uncle still make it alive (heart problem)?

    Best answer: Cardiologists know what they are talking about. It sounds as if he has heart failure and I'm sorry but there is nothing to cure it.

  • Have you ever sold your body for money?

    Best answer: Well. People on Tumblr donate to my PayPal in exchange for pictures or videos. I've made maybe $2000 or $3000 in the past couple years from it. People have weird fetishes and will pay a lot of money if they like what you do.

  • Should I go to the doctors?

    Best answer: Since you have signs of infection from the scab, are you thinking that since the sore looks pink it is not infected in some way?

  • I’m worried about cardiac arrest and I’m 16?

    Best answer: The only time young people have cardiac arrest is when they have underlying anatomical issues, usually they are born with them, and its not very common. Worrying about this is really useless as the odds are you are fine, do not obsess.
