The risk of developing a second primary cancer following laryngeal cancer was estimated by following-up 472 male laryngeal cancer patients for an average of 8.6 years by means of record linkage to the Osaka Cancer Registry.
Of these patients, 115 developed a second cancer other than laryngeal cancer, whereas the expected number derived from the incidence rates among Osaka residents was 51.4 (relative risk (RR)=2.2, 95% confidence interval =1.85-2.69).
Cumulative risk of developing a second primary cancer was estimated to be 31.1% at 15 years after laryngeal cancer.
