Physical activity is known to decrease the risk for certain cancers and other serious illnesses. What's more, recent studies suggest that regular exercise can also improve overall health and quality of life for those who have already been diagnosed with the disease: this includes people who have just been diagnosed, those currently in treatment and even those in remission.

Research experts have identified several categories of benefits available to patients who engage in physical fitness programs, but questions have remained because every type of cancer exhibits a different set of symptoms and varies in treatment programs. Researchers have trouble with some types of cancer and treatment plans due to the lack of sufficient patients to perform gold-standard studies. However, trials have shown significant promise of benefits even in these hard to study areas.
Whether you were just diagnosed, are undergoing treatment, or are in remission of cancer- physical fitness is one of the best things that you can do for your health. Research has proven that a consistent exercise routine has many benefits.
The health benefits of aerobic and strength exercises are well known. Slightly less known, however, is the potential benefits of exercise for cancer patients before, during, and after chemotherapy treatment. Light exercises can often reduce symptoms associated with cancer treatment.
