Family history data from an incident case-control study of lung cancer conducted in the Texas Gulf Coast region between 1976 and 1980 were analyzed to evaluate the contribution of cancer in first-degree relatives to lung cancer risk.
Odds ratios (OR) increased slightly as the number of relatives with any cancer increased (reaching 1.5 with 4 or more relatives with cancer).
Risks wer higher for tobacco-related cancers (OR=1.5 for 2 or more relatives with these tumors) and greatest for first-degree relatives with lung cancer (OR=2.8 for lung cancer in 2 or more relatives).
