Abstract

The relation between physical activity and renal cell cancer is unclear. High occupational physical activity has been associated with a decreased risk of renal cell cancer among men - but not among women - in two previous studies, while no association has been found for leisure time physical activity. Our aim was to investigate the association between occupational and leisure time physical activity in a prospective cohort of 17,241 Swedish twins. Information on physical activity and a wide range of potential confounding factors was obtained through a mailed questionnaire. During follow-up from 1967 through 1997 we identified 102 cases of renal cell cancer. We found no evidence of an inverse association between either occupational or leisure time physical activity and risk of renal cell cancer in this prospective cohort.
