Generally, doctors advise at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, of moderate paced activity such as walking. This level of activity is helpful for even during treatment. But everyone’s different and exercise needs to be tailored to you, taking into account your overall fitness, diagnosis, and other factors that could affect safety.

There are very good reasons for exercising. It can improve your quality of life and help you feel better. Some studies show that it can help to speed up recovery after cancer treatment. Regular exercise can also reduce stress and give you more energy.
