Perhaps more importantly, it appears that exercise, whether begun during or after breast cancer treatment, might have a number of other benefits. While the scientific data appears to be mixed, several studies suggest that exercising might improve a breast cancer survivor's quality of life by reducing fatigue, reducing depression and anxiety, and helping to lose weight if needed. Other studies have also suggested that exercise might improve bone mineral density, physical function, and mood.
If you are a breast cancer survivor, remember to make exercise a part of your recovery process.
