Physical activity and cancerThere are many ways to be physically active. It can mean doing simple daily activities, such as housework or walking to the shops. Or it can mean more energetic activities, such as gardening, dancing, running or cycling.
Many people say physical activity helps them feel more like they did before cancer, but you may need to be careful with the activities you choose. This will depend on your type of cancer, as well as your treatment, its side effects and any other medical conditions you might have.
We have information about physical activity and cancer.
