It is just a measure of how well the study data fit the model. The take away is that if you have a parent who had lung cancer diagnosed before 60, you might have an elevated risk of developing lung cancer as well. Discuss your mom's medical history and your history of smoking with your doctor and work with him to establish a monitoring program. f your mom had a different type of cancer, then this does not apply to you.

It's just saying lung cancer is more likely if a relative had it and they have the gene for lung cancer just keep doing check ups and what you need to to help prevent it their is a test called 23 and me and it's 100 dollars and it's tests your genes to tell you what you are at risk for now and later in life my grandfather quit smoking for 30 years and he ended up getting lung cancer at 70 years old what I am saying is you don't just get lung cancer from smoking
