The relative risk of subsequent cancers was evaluated for a total of 9,092 patients with lip and oropharyngeal cancer recorded between 1953 and 1989 in the nationwide Finnish Cancer Registry.
The observed numbers of patients were compared with those expected on the basis of the incidence rates in the Finnish population.
There were 1,130 patients (12%) with a new cancer.
The standardised incidence ratio (SIR) of contracting a new primary cancer was 1.2 for lip cancer patients (95% CI 1.1-1.3) and 1.4 for patients with oropharyngeal cancer (95% CI 1.2- 1.4).
