Abstract Introduction:<\b>
We aimed to investigate physical activity (PA) and risk of different histological subtypes of lung cancer according to smoking status and BMI and to take advantage of repeated measurements in a large cohort of women in Norway. Methods:<\b>
The study sample for the baseline data analysis consisted of 80,802 women. Repeated measurements of PA level, smoking, weight, and height were available for 54,691 women (63.2%), who were included in repeated measurement analyses combined with multiple imputation to address attrition. Cox proportional hazard regression models were used to calculate hazard ratios with 95% confidence intervals. Results:<\b>
During a median follow-up of 12.9 years, 782 cases of primary lung cancer were identified. We found an inverse dose-response association between PA and lung cancer overall. The results were consistent when using baseline data and repeated measurements of PA and possible confounders. We observed a similar trend for adenocarcinoma, but not for squamous cell or small cell carcinomas. Conclusion:<\b>
Our findings suggest a more pronounced association between lung cancer and PA levels in current and former smokers and in normal-weight and overweight participants with increasing PA levels.
