Walking improves quality of life in patients with advanced cancer

from Oncology Nurse Advisor

Patients with advanced cancer who walk for 30 minutes three times a week experience improved quality of life, a pilot study involving patients with advanced breast, prostate, gynecologic or hematologic cancers has shown. The researchers examined the impact of walking on quality of life and symptom severity in patients with relapsed or metastatic disease. Patients typically decrease their exercise levels during cancer treatment, and these levels remain low afterward in spite of mounting evidence indicating the significant health benefits of physical activity. General benefits of walking include improved cardiovascular health and increased energy levels. more
