We analyzed the effects of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on laryngeal carcinoma (LC) risk and overall survival (OS) in 170 Chinese male LC patients followed for 10 years. After assessment of clinical characteristics (age, laryngectomy, neck dissection, tumor differentiation, TNM status), the patients were genotyped for 24 SNPs associated with risk in multiple cancers. LC risk was assessed using log-rank test and Cox proportional hazard models. The median OS time was 48 months. By the follow-up deadline, OS was 41.2%. Kaplan-Meier analysis indicated 1-, 3-, and 5-year survival rates to be 84.7%, 57.2%, and 47.1%, respectively. Five LC clinicopathological characteristics, namely total laryngectomy (TL), low differentiation (LD), T3-T4, N1-N2, and clinical stage III-IV were associated with worse OS (HR: 2.35, p < 0.001; HR: 2.39, p = 0.02; HR: 2.17, p < 0.001; HR: 2.39, p < 0.001; and HR: 3.29, p < 0.001, respectively). Univariate cox regression analysis indicated that four SNPs were associated (p < 0.05) with LC OS in the codominant genetic model compared to patients with the homozygous wild-type genotype: rs10088262 G/A (HR = 1.57), rs1665650 A/G (HR = 0.65); rs3802842 C/C (HR = 2.18), and rs59336 T/A and T/T (HR = 0.61 and 2.61, respectively).
