News from New Jersey asbestos attorneys: Lung cancer patients may find benefit in physical activity

Consider legal remedies if asbestos caused lung cancer or mesothelioma. New Jersey residents may get a free legal review via the form on this page.

A study conducted by The Cancer Institute of New Jersey, and featured in the current edition of Physician’s Weekly, outlines research on the association between increased physical activity and greater quality of life in lung cancer patients.

The research, which was funded by the National Cancer Institute, was conducted with 175 participants who were treated surgically for early-stage lung cancer from one to six years previously.

Individuals who were more physically active reported an overall better mood, more vigor, fewer problems with shortness of breath, and greater physical functioning than less active individuals.

And another study out of Massachusetts General Hospital found that exercise impacts the health and quality of life of patients with an advanced or incurable lung cancer diagnosis.

The study, published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, said that although fewer than half of the participants were able to complete the exercise program, those individuals who did experienced a significant reduction in lung cancer symptoms and no deterioration in their six-minute walk test or muscle strength.
