Summary 4x increased risk for esophageal squamous cell cancer among Han Chinese
Criteria Gs245/criteria


You have a total of 5 or 6 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 4 times the risk of developing the disease, if you are of Chinese ancestry. Smoking and alcohol use will apparently increase your risk further.[PMID 21642993]
