Smoker at 17, cancer patient at 24


Hoping for the best: Muhammad Faid getting treatment at HKL

KUALA LUMPUR: Muhammad Faid started smoking at age 17 and smoked five sticks a day with his friends. He is now 24 and is one of the youngest patients to have been diagnosed with oral cancer.

He is now undergoing chemotherapy at Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL). Although the cause of the cancer was not known, doctors say most oral cavity cancer (or oral cancer) patients they see are smokers.
