Being physically active has multiple benefits for people living with cancer:

 

  • Reduce risk of cancer recurrence – being active during and after cancer treatment can reduce the risk of recurrence in some cancers. It can also reduce the risk of developing other long-term conditions.

  • Reduce side effects – being active during and after cancer treatment can reduce some side effects of cancer and cancer treatment. Side effects activity helps with include fatigue, depression, weight gain, blood clots, hot flushes, night sweats and nerve damage.

  • Prevent decline in physical ability – being active during cancer treatment can prevent a decline in physical ability without increasing fatigue levels.

  • Recover physical ability – being active after cancer treatment helps patients recover physical ability.

  • Maintain independence – in cases of advanced cancer physical activity can help patients maintain independence and well-being.
