Diving as part of the cancer treatment process?

Cancer survival rates in the UK have doubled over the last 40 years. The average number of years of life in patients has also increased. As a result, more and more people are returning to work, physical activity and normal daily activities after cancer treatment and/or surgery.

Researchers and doctors at DDRC Healthcare – Plymouth’s Centre for Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine, are planning to investigate the impact of diving on the cancer treatment process as part of their continuing Health of Divers project, and are asking divers who have experienced the disease to take part in an online survey.

“Research shows that physical activity can benefit many aspects of cancer treatment and survival,” says a representative from DDRC Healthcare, which hopes to find out how divers who have cancer or have had it in the past perceive the impact of diving on the disease.

The researchers want to find out whether diving played a role in the healing process and whether the individuals continued to be active or had to give it up as a result of their illness. Previous studies of divers by DDRC Healthcare have covered aspects as diverse as alcohol, drugs and mental and even dental health.

The online questionnaire is completely anonymous. “As with our other surveys, all information provided to us will be absolutely confidential. The survey contains 40 questions, but it is not necessary to answer all of them, so it should not take more than five minutes to complete.

If you are a diver and are struggling or have struggled with cancer in the past and would like to complete the survey and help collect data, it is available at this link.
