Can cigars cause lung cancer?

My husband thinks that because he doesn't inhale cigars he is not at any risk of lung cancer. Is he correct or is he at risk like any smoker non-inhaling or inhaling?

Yes they can. They have just as much risk of causing cancer as cigarettes. In fact, the larger cigars have more tobacco in them and this could mean more risk. It doesnt matter if he is inhaling or not he could still get lung cancer.

We know that exposure to second-hand smoke confers some risk of lung cancer. Since he is breathing around his own smoke, regardless if he personally inhales or not with each puff, he is increasing his risk of lung cancer.

He is less at risk smoking cigars for lung cancer, however, cigars make him significantly more prone to throat, mouth and tongue cancer.

Smoking is the chief reasons for cancer. If you lit cigar and take the smoke in, defenitely it will go to your lungs. Generally people smokes for getting pleasure but if you don't inhale the smoke, you will never get this pleasure. At any cost, smoking is dangerous. Please remember that nothing is going to gain out of smoking.
