Brief Summary:
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women in the world and its incidence reaches up to 16%.Although survival can be increased with early diagnosis and more effective therapies, physical complications such as lymphedema, upper extremity dysfunction and chronic pain are frequently seen during and/or after breast cancer treatments. It has been determined that lymphedema associated with breast cancer treatment is a factor that mediates and/or exacerbates the adverse effects of breast cancer treatments on upper extremity functional capacity and quality of life of patients.It was determined that the 6 Minute Pegboard and Ring Test (6PRT) score showed a clear relationship with the upper extremity daily living activities (ADLs), and it was concluded that the 6 Minute Pegboard and Ring Test (6PRT) test could be used as an appropriate test in pulmonary rehabilitation programs to predict and show the improvement of daily living activities (ADLs). Therefore, in this study; The results to be obtained by evaluating the validity and reliability of the 6 Minute Pegboard and Ring Test (6PRT) test in breast cancer patients will increase the use of this test in both testing arm endurance and arm exercise capacity in breast cancer patients, and predicting the effect on daily living activities (ADLs)
