Description For this study, you will be asked to complete a personal interview. During the interview, you will be asked questions about your demographics (age, sex, etc.), certain environmental exposures, your medical history, family history, your diet, and your smoking and alcohol use histories. It should take around 50 minutes to complete the interview. You will also have around 2 ½ tablespoons of blood drawn for special tests. These tests will look for any biologic factors associated with certain cancers. The interview and blood draw will be scheduled at the time and place of your convenience. You will not be informed of the results of any of the testing done with your samples. There is a possibility that you might be contacted in the future about if researchers need clarification on any of information already collected. You are free to refuse any further participation if you wish. This is an investigational study. Up to 1,500 participants will take part in this study.
