Breast cancer survivors can increase the length of their lives by engaging in exercise. A study found that even moderate exercise can reduce the risk of breast cancer reoccurrence by 25 to 50%. One of the reasons may be because physical activity reduces obesity which increases circulating estrogen. Exercise is also beneficial in lowering the risk of other cancers such as colon endometrial, kidney and esophageal cancer. During treatment, patients should consult with their doctor about what type and level of exercise they can undertake but once active treatment is over, they should be able to do whatever they can manage.
