On a percentage basic how far is it possible for a 24 year old man to be a victim of lung cancer provided that he's never smoked drunk or not exposed to passive smoking?

Are you worried about throat cancer or lung cancer ?
The symptoms are the same in lung cancer whether you smoke or not.
If you have symptoms with lung cancer, it is usually too late to achieve
a cure. Cures in non-small cell lung cancers are only possible with surgery.
Chemotherapy never cures these lung cancers.
In men 90% of lung cancers are caused by smoking.
Over twenty years of cancer medical practice in North Carolina,
every one of the hundreds of people I saw with lung cancers had been a smoker,
and they all died of their malignancy.
At age 24 in a non-smoker, lung cancers are unheard of.
The average age for non-small cell lung cancer is 71.
Less than 3% occur under the age of 45.
