Abstract

Patients with small-cell lung cancer who survive more than 2 years have a significantly increased risk (relative risk of 3.6) of developing a second primary tumour. The cessation of cigarette smoking after successful therapy is associated with a significantly decreased risk of a second primary tumour.
