(NEW YORK) -- A new study finds that exercise can improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients, Health Day reports.
Researchers from the University of Miami examined the exercise levels and mental and physical health of 240 women with breast cancer four to ten weeks after surgery. They found that the women who were physically active suffered less from depression, fatigue and had a better quality of life during cancer treatment following surgery.
The same researchers previously found that breast cancer treatment is also improved by stress management, Health Day says.
