Is it actually possible to get COPD or Emphysema at the age 22?
i smoked a pack/day for about 6 years, had pneumothorax which is lung rupture or lung collapse twice, so i decided to quit smoking and started vaping to defeat the cravings of a normal cigg, then suddenly i felt a strange feeling in my lungs, so i went and got my lungs CT scanned, the report of the CT says that i have "mild paraseptal emphysematous lung changes"
i don't cough at all, and i don't feel any trouble breathing, but i feel some little chest pain which going on for two weeks now.
my question is did i developed emphysema at my age? or this maybe is something else? because i searched alot online and didn't find anyone who has copd or emphysema in their 20s
*no one in my family from both sides ever had any lung problems and there's some smokers who smoked for more than 30 years with no problems "yet anyway" could i develop copd after only 6 years?
