Cancer Research: DNA blood test detects lung cancer mutations ♦ After prostate cancer, start walking ♦ Melanoma drugs benefit some lung cancer patients

Socioeconomic factors affect odds of death after a lung cancer operation People with limited education and low income have higher odds of death within 30 days after undergoing an operation for lung cancer than those who are more educated and financially better off.
After prostate cancer, start walking Walking at an easy pace for about three hours every week may be just enough physical activity to help prostate cancer survivors reduce damaging side effects of their treatment, according to a new study. "Non-vigorous walking for three hours per week seems to improve the fatigue, depression and body weight issues that affect many men post-treatment, If you walk even more briskly, for only 90 minutes a week, you could also see similar benefits in these areas."
DNA blood test detects lung cancer mutations  Cancer DNA circulating in the bloodstream of lung cancer patients can provide doctors with vital mutation information that can help optimize treatment when tumor tissue is not available
Evidence grows that melanoma drugs benefit some lung cancer patients A subset of lung cancer patients can derive important clinical benefits from drugs that are more commonly used to treat melanoma,
