At the end of the five year study, patients having radiation therapy in addition to the breast lumpectomy had a 41% lower rate of recurrence in the breast and a 36% lower rate of recurrence in the rest of the body. The results of the study have been announced at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. For more information, please visit their website at asco.org.

Cancer Patients Benefit from Exercise During and After Treatment

Kevin Anderson - Monday, May 24, 2010
Researchers at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, will present a poster at this year's American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting noting that from their observations, breast and prostate cancer patients who regularly exercise during and after cancer treatment report having a better quality of life and being less fatigued.  According to Dr. Walker, Division Director of Breast Services in the Department of Radiation Oncology, "using exercise as an approach to cancer care has the potential to benefit patients both physically and psychologically, as well as mitigate treatment side effects." 

The abstract of the study is available online at http://www.ASCO.org.
