I'm real sorry to hear that bud. My condolences to your and your family. My mom just finished battling breast cancer but fortunately, she made it out alright.
Another reason to stop; just because you smoked 10 years and now stopped doesn't mean everything will go back to 100%. You are now a statistic and must watch your health very closely. Even when you stop, they recommend a lung X-ray every 3-5 years to try and catch any abnormalities. I'm really appreciating everyone's input here. Again, i know many have been lost to lung cancer so my prayers go out to you and your families because its not an easy road. M Ryder, the best of luck to you and your family.
