Estimation of lung cancer risk

The Lung Cancer Risk Online Questionnaire (LUCROQ) is an on-line risk-assessment tool that can be used to estimate a person's risk of developing lung cancer in the future based on several simple questions. The LUCROQ can be either self-administered or administered by a health professional and is intended for risk assessment in individuals between 35 and 75 years of age who are currently lung cancer-free. All the data provided are anonymous and will not be accessed by anyone (including by the members of the LUCROQ development team). This risk-assessment tool was developed by researchers from the Université de Montréal based on data from an epidemiological study conducted in Montreal between 1996 and 2001.
The developers of the LUCROQ take no responsibility on how the information provided is used.

The current website is still in the beta phase.
The risk of lung cancer is the probability of developing lung cancer over a particular period of time in a person with a particular set of risk factors for the disease.

For example, if a person's estimated 15-year risk of lung cancer is 0.1%, the interpretation of this is that in a hypothetical group of 10000 people with the same risk factors that were used for estimation of the risk in the person at hand, 10 of them would be expected to develop lung cancer over the next 15 years (provided they do not die from any other cause in the meantime).
