Editors Note: The Cancer Working Group (WG) slightly modified this question from the original protocol text. The original protocol obtains year of diagnosis by asking respondents to choose between three choices (Before June 1, 2003; June 2003 to May 2005; or after June 1, 2005). The Cancer WG removed the phrase "since June 2003" in order to allow collection of diagnoses that occurred prior to June 2003. The additional response options were deleted, and respondents are now asked to write in the four-digit year of diagnosis.

Measure Name:

Pre-existing Conditions Associated with Cancer

Release Date:

December 30, 2009

Definition

Measure to assess history of clinician-diagnosed illnesses

Purpose

History of clinician-diagnosed illnesses is important to investigate because some pre-existing conditions are associated with cancer. These pre-existing conditions can cause or be associated with secondary conditions that may themselves cause cancer.

Keywords

clinician-diagnosed Illnesses, diseases, conditions, pre-existing, cancer, The Nurses Health Study II (NHS), Cancer
