Abstract:   (27 Views)
Background. Cancer is one of the three health dilemmas and the third cause of mortality in Iran. Bladder cancer is the ninth common type of cancer in the world. Physical activity is associated with decreased risk for many cancers.
Objectives. The main aim of this study is to investigate the effect of regular and long-term physical activity on the risk of bladder cancer.
Methods. This is a cross-sectional descriptive-analytical research. For this study, 45 sports instructors (mean age =58.1±1.39), who had regular long-term physical activities in their life (at least 10 years), were selected using simple random sampling, and 31 bladder cancer patients (mean age =60.3±11.3), were selected using random two-stage cluster sampling. The data was collected in two personal information and physical activity questionnaires and were analyzed through the SPSS software, T-Test, Analysis of Variance, and Chi-2 Independence test.
Results. The mobility rate and physical activity of bladder cancer patients were very low. There was a significant relationship between having physical activity and the incidence of cancer (P<0.001). With regular physical activity, the chance of morbidity to cancer drops a lot.
Conclusion. According to the results, having long-term and regular physical activity may effective in preventing bladder cancer. So that with regular physical activity, the risk of bladder cancer is reduced.

  • Current study supports the idea of the prior studies regarding the prevention of bladder cancer by increasing long-term regular physical activity level regardless of gender, intensity, type of physical activity and other criteria.
  • Based on the results of previous research and the present study, we claim that there is a positive relationship between the level of physical activity and the prevention of bladder cancer.
