Cancer has long been recognized to have a familial component.
Elevated risks for cancers at the same site for relatives of cancer probands have been reported for both common cancers and a number of the rarer cancer sites.
For a particular cancer site, however, the estimated risks to relatives have varied considerably depending on criteria for selection of probands, how cancers were determined in relatives, and overall study design.
Not surprisingly, the estimated risks of other cancers in relatives of probands with cancer at a given site have been subject to even more variation.
