Magnitude 3
Summary 5x risk of thyroid cancer
Criteria Gs137/criteria

The 3.7% of so of all individuals who are both rs965513(A;A) and rs944289(C;C) are reported to be at ~5.7x increased risk for thyroid cancer compared to noncarriers.[PMID 19198613]

according to the NCI, the typical lifetime risk is 0.25% for men and 0.64% for women, so your lifetime risk is perhaps a bit below 1.5% for men and 3.5% for women.
