skeletal muscle mass and cancer patient quality of life: a meta-analysis Loss of skeletal muscle mass (sarcopenia), is a widely prevalent problem among cancer patients with incidence ranging from 11 to 74%. Low skeletal muscle mass at baseline is predictive of poor cancer outcomes such as decreased overall survival, increased risk
