Title Vigorous or Moderate Exercise in Enhancing Active Surveillance in Patients With Localized Prostate Cancer
Conditions Recurrent Prostate Cancer
Stage I Prostate Cancer
Stage IIA Prostate Cancer
Stage IIB Prostate Cancer
Interventions Behavioral: moderate exercise intervention
Behavioral: vigorous exercise intervention - standard
Other: questionnaire administration
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
Behavioral: vigorous exercise intervention - cybercycling
Behavioral: Exercise Logs
Behavioral: Adherence
Behavioral: Exercise and body composition test
Phase N/A
Purpose This randomized pilot clinical trial compares vigorous or moderate exercise in enhancing active surveillance in patients with prostate cancer that has not spread to nearby lymph nodes or to other parts of the body. Active surveillance involves watching the patient's condition but not giving any treatment unless test results show that the patient's condition is getting worse. Exercise may improve fitness, quality of life, brain health, and blood biomarkers in patients with prostate cancer on active surveillance. It is not yet known whether vigorous or moderate exercise works better in enhancing active surveillance in patients with localized prostate cancer.
