Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activating mutation is an important predictive biomarker of EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), while family history of cancer also plays an important role in the neoplasia of lung cancer. This study aimed to investigate the association between family history of cancer and EGFR mutation status in NSCLC population.
