Can mild emphysema develop after non-smoking
Smoking is a common inducing factor leading to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obstructive emphysema. If smoking cessation is reduced in early emphysema, the further damage of smoke to lung tissue can be reduced and further aggravated. However, the smoke particles that have been inhaled will deposit in the lungs and stay for a long time. After ten years of complete smoking cessation, the smoke particles will be completely removed. Therefore, emphysema may develop further after quitting smoking.
