Studies on cancer loci by use of twin data reveal sources of variation in risk. The Nordic twin and cancer registries contain the largest cohort of population representative twins ever studied with more than median 40 years of follow-up. This article considers findings that show influences on familial risk and demonstrates the strengths of the matched case co-twin design for unraveling important risk factors of cancers. Studies using twin data will expectedly continue to provide insights into cancer epidemiology and genetics for the benefit of prevention and treatment.
