Benjamin Singh Thesis
Compelling evidence demonstrates the importance of regular exercise following breast cancer, and this is particularly important for those who develop breast cancer-related lymphoedema. However, fear of lymphoedema exacerbation and the need to wear compression while exercising present as significant barriers for these women. This Master's research evaluated the need for wearing compression during exercise in women with breast cancer-related lymphoedema. Findings demonstrated that exercise performed without compression does not exacerbate lymphoedema or related symptoms. These findings are clinically relevant as they highlight that compression use during exercise should be prescribed on an individual basis, taking into consideration patient preferences and adherence issues.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
