Risk Factors for Sporadic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PNETs): Updated Results From a Single-Center Case Control Study Abstract #495

Introduction: PNETs are uncommon and little is known about risk factors and association with other cancers.
Aim(s): To evaluate smoking, alcohol use, family history of PNET and other cancers, and personal history of diabetes as risk factors.
Materials and methods: PNET cases seen at the Mayo Clinic Rochester from 2000 to 2011 were evaluated. Insulinoma and high-grade PNETs were excluded. Primary care pts served as controls (ctrl) and were matched (2:1) to patients on age, sex and region of residence. Cases and ctrl completed the same questionnaires at the time of evaluation. Categorical variables were compared with the chi-square test; continuous variables were compared using a two-sample t test.
