Physical activity and cancer recurrence: a detailed review


Readers with a strong interest in the relationships between exercise and risk for cancer recurrence may want to download and read the full text of a recent article by Friedenreich et al.

The authors have carried out a detailed review of what we do know, what we think we know, and what we don’t know about the relationships between physical activity (both before and after a diagnosis of cancer) and the recurrence of such a cancer — prostate cancer very specifically included.

They also discuss the types of research that might help us to better understand the relationships between exercise and risk for recurrence and thus what recommendations can and should be given to specific types of patients.
