Presentation Abstract

Exercise in Patients with Cancer

Exercise has been shown to be safe and beneficial to patients with both early and advanced cancers. The benefits range from improvements in function, symptoms, and quality of life, to reduction in mortality in cancer patients. Pre-clinical studies have also uncovered potential anti-tumor mechanisms of exercise. In this talk, we will unwrap the evidence surrounding the role of exercise in cancer patients and its potential future applications in the field of oncology.
