Taking a cue from the following 2 studies; it seems Intense Exercise can help inhibit Prostrate cancer (likely others too) growth ? Seems like the Adrenaline Rush contributes to inhibit the cancer cell growth.

Would like to have comments on the following points:

  1. Does it (intense exercise) have any considerable benefits in humans for the patients already diagnosed with some form of cancer ? Atleast to the patients who are in suitable physical condition and dealing with comparatively less aggressive cancer ? 
  2. Can it (intense exercise) be considered a good enough recommendation from specifically "cancer prevention" strategy pov ?
  3. If #1 or #2 are Yes...then can there be some other form of activity (e.g. going to high altitudes which are less testing physically as compared to intense exercise) induce the same "Adrenaline Rush" as induced by intensive exercise and still have the same positive effect on cancer or with respect to prevention ?
