AbstractPurposeExamine the effects of an 8-week yoga therapy on fatigue in patients with different types of cancer.MethodsA total of 173 cancer patients suffering from mild to severe fatigue were randomly allocated to yoga intervention (n = 84) (IG) versus waitlist control group (CG) (n = 88). Yoga therapy consisted of eight weekly sessions with 60 min  each. The primary outcome was self-reported fatigue symptoms. Secondary outcomes were symptoms of depression and quality of life (QoL). Data were assessed using questionnaires before (T0) and after yoga therapy for IG versus waiting period for CG (T1).ResultsA stronger...

Long ‐term breast cancer survivors (5‐16 years post‐diagnosis) with recurrence reported significantly higher prevalence of mild/severe depression than disease‐free survivors and controls, but prevalence in disease‐free survivors and controls was comparable. Cancer recurrence, age, education, e mployment, income, living independently, and BMI were significant determinants of depression in breast cancer survivors. AbstractBackgroundDepression is more prevalent in breast cancer (BC) survivors than in the general population. However, little is known about depression in long ‐term survivors. Study objectives we...

AbstractIntroduction and aims The burden of treatment toxicities in breast cancer requires longitudinal assessment of patient-centered outcomes. The current study aimed to assess the feasibility of collecting general and breast cancer-specific quality of life (QoL), ongoing symptoms and unmet needs, in patients identified from a population-based cancer registry, and to assess the contribution of demographic, disease, and care-related factors.MethodsEligible patients were identified from the Victorian Cancer Registry (Victoria, Australia) using the ICD-10 code C50, diagnosed during 2013, 2011, and 2009. Data included age,...
