Summary 2x increased risk for esophageal squamous cell cancer among Han Chinese
Criteria Gs244/criteria


You have a total of 3 or 4 SNP variants (out of 6) associated in Han Chinese with increased risk for esophageal squamous cell cancer, which reportedly places you on average at about double the risk (2x) of developing the disease, if you are of Chinese ancestry. Smoking and alcohol use will apparently increase your risk further.[PMID 21642993]
