Doing some form of physical activity during and after cancer can improve your physical and mental wellbeing.
Exercise is safe and beneficial for most people with and after cancer.
Your cancer doctor, specialist nurse or physiotherapist can advise you on how to move your body and get the benefits of activity at any stage of cancer.
If you are experiencing side effects of cancer treatment or cancer symptoms, like fatigue, low mood or weakness, the thought of exercising might seem challenging or even impossible. It’s important to know that exercise can help with these symptoms, and even a small amount of movement can help.
