Background and Aim: The burden of non-communicable disease (NCD) such as cancers and diabetic is increasing. The purpose of the current study was to perform an epidemiological survey for pattern recognition of the most prevalent cancers, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and multiple sclerosis among the Iranian military community from 2001 to 2017.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study all registered cancers, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and multiple sclerosis in the Iranian military community between 2001‒2017 were collected. Simple proportions and the Spearman correlation coefficient were used for data analysis.
 Results: The total number of registered cancers during 2001‒2017 was about 31675 cases in the Iranian military community. A total of 15413 (48.66%) were females and 16262 (51.34%) were males. The most prevalent cancers in this group were: breast, prostate, colon and gastric cancers respectively. The incidence of colon and gastric cancers among males was more than females. The trend of cancers among the Iranian military community was increasing. There was a positive and significant association between the incidence of cancers with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and multiple sclerosis in the Iranian military community.
Conclusion: Considering the increasing trend of cancers and the presence of the positive association between cancers and other NCDs such as different types of diabetes and multiple sclerosis, the diagnosis and control of common risk factors can be an important approach for disease prevention and reduction.
Keywords: Military Community, Cancer, Non Communicable Diseases.
