ROSEBURG, Ore. – Researchers in Oregon are looking for men with prostate cancer who want to take part in a new study.

KEZI 9 Checks in is a monthly reminder for women to do a self breast exam to check for any lumps or changes.

This month, we’re also looking at a study being done at Oregon Health & Science University in partnership with the Community Cancer Center in Roseburg. It could change clinical care.

Kerri Winters-Stone, a researcher at OHSU, said men who received hormone therapy may have experienced side effects like weakness, being tired, trouble sleeping or changes in weight or mood. There’s no medication to treat those side effects, but they think exercise could.

They recently received a $2.5 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to study exercise as medicine.

“While we know exercise is good for everybody – cancer or not – we don’t know if certain types of exercise might be better than others at combatting the different side effects from hormone therapy,” Winters-Stone said.

The trial will compare different types of exercise to see how it affects physical functioning, mood and body composition.

If you want to take part in professionally designed and supervised classes, sessions are three times a week for six months. For more information, click here.
