WHAT CAN EXERCISE DO FOR MEN WITH PROSTATE CANCER ON ACTIVE SURVEILLANCE?
Active surveillance is a way of monitoring prostate cancer and is increasingly the therapy of choice for men with localized, slow-growing tumours, allowing them to delay or avoid treatment and the side effects that can occur after surgery and radiotherapy.
If our hypothesis is correct, exercise could be a cost-effective and simple way for men on active surveillance to feel better, slow cancer progression and delay or eliminate medical treatment altogether.
