MyLungRisk (MLR)

MyLungRisk is an easy to use lung cancer risk prediction questionnaire which can calculate your risk of developing lung cancer over the next five years. 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. The study was developed with Caucasian data only.

MyLungRisk is based on the Liverpool Lung Project (LLP) risk model, which has been tested and shown to be of value in two international studies and a large UK study and updated to LLP v2 [3] -
