Abstract

Background The purpose of this study was to examine the risk of second primary malignancy (SPM) after nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Methods We compared the incidence of SPM in patients diagnosed with NPC at the end of 2009 using the data extracted from the Taiwan Longitudinal Health Insurance Database between 2001 and 2008 (n = 10,299), with age-matched controls (1:10; n = 102,990). Results We found a 55% increased risk of SPM in patients diagnosed with NPC, compared to the risk of first malignancy in the age-matched controls (incidence rate ratio [IRR] = 1.55; p
