A. Tobacco accounts for about 80% of lung cancer deaths. But even though it’s less common, some people who don’t smoke get lung cancer, too. Every year, 16,000 to 24,000 pakistani die of lung cancer even though they have never smoked. If lung cancer in nonsmokers had its own category separate from lung cancer in smokers, it would rank among the top 10 fatal cancers in the Pakistan.
