The PubMed article regarding head, neck, and lung cancer indicates being (A;A) provides an increased risk, but I think it says that being heterozygous doesn't produce the same effects. As always, please spotcheck me! --Lilstar (talk) 18:55, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

The article finds the most statistical significance for the model in which the minor/A allele acts dominantly in terms of increasing cancer risk (even if it's a rather small effect). So being heterozygous is associated with increased risk, to the same (small) extent as being heterozygous minor. Greg (talk) 02:12, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
