Physical training reduces symptoms and side effects in metastatic breast cancer


Patients with metastatic breast cancer experience fewer symptoms of their illness and fewer side effects from treatments when engaging in physical training. For example, they are less fatigued, experience less pain, and improve their physical fitness. As a result, patients report a better quality of life. This was revealed in an international study led by UMC Utrecht and conducted by the Netherlands Cancer Institute as one of the research group partners. This is one of the largest and most comprehensive randomized controlled trials to date investigating the impact of training for people with metastatic cancer.
