Lifestyle habits and bladder cancer prognosis: effects by tumour stage and molecular subtype.
Non-muscle invasive bladder cancer patients (NMIBC) with T1 tumours or genomically unstable/squamous-cell-carcinoma-like molecular subtypes have a high risk of recurrence and muscle-invasive progression, the latter being a life-threatening condition. This project will provide insight in whether associations of smoking, body weight, physical activity, and fruit and vegetable consumption with NMIBC outcomes are mediated and/or modified by tumour stage and molecular subtype. Our ultimate aim is to provide NMIBC patients with tailored advice concerning their lifestyle to enable them to influence their prognosis.
