Exercise as Therapy for Advanced Lung Cancer?


One of the most common questions I am asked by newly diagnosed lung cancer patients is “What can I, personally, do to help fight my cancer?” The two most common topics are diet and exercise. While the influence of diet on cancer outcomes is a good topic for discussion, today I wanted to focus on the question of exercise in cancer patients, and whether exercise may help people with lung cancer either live longer or at least have a better quality of life.
