Does steam inhalation increase the risk of lung cancer?
I know SMOKE can increase the risk of lung cancer but what if you inhale hot steam from boiling water?
I know steam inhalation has some health benefits but you are still inhaling something hot, as if you were smoking.

Not at all the same thing.
Smoke has thousands of chemical compounds in it, many of which are toxic, cancerous or irritants.
Steam from hot water has none of those things.
It it was hot enough to damage anything, then you would notice the pain immediately.
