LLP Lung Cancer Risk Model

The LLP Lung Cancer Risk Model provides an estimate of the probability that an individual, with a specified combination of risk factors, will develop lung cancer within a 5-year period. All risk factors are gathered by questionnaire

The LLP risk model was generated using data from 579 lung cancer cases and 1157 age- and sex-matched population-based controls (Cassidy et al., British Journal of Cancer2008, 98(2):270-6). It has been validated using data from two large, independent international studies (Raji et al., Annals of Internal Medicine 2012, 157(4):242-50).

Risk prediction models for lung cancer are useful for selecting people at highest risk for screening trials. The LLP risk model has been used to select individuals for the UKLS lung cancer screening trial (Field et al., Health Technol Assess 2016, 20(40):1-146; Field et al., Thorax 2016, 71(2):161-70)

 

My lung Risk

MyLungRisk is an easy to use on-line lung cancer risk prediction questionnaire, which can calculate your risk of developing lung cancer over the next five years, based on the Liverpool Lung Project risk model.

The MyLungRisk Questionnaire has been developed for use by individuals aged 50 to 79 years and is based on age, gender, smoking duration, family history of lung cancer, previous history of pneumonia, previous diagnosis of cancer and exposure to asbestos. The questionnaire can be completed by non-smokers, former smokers and current smokers. MyLungRisk is: www.mylungrisk.org
