Women can benefit from moderate exercise during breast cancer recovery

The University of Bristol is investigating the benefits of exercise on cancer rehabilitation. Researchers believe that half an hour of exercise three times a week will assist recovery from breast cancer as well as improving physical and mental well being. Breast cancer treatment often includes symptoms such as weight gain, insomnia, fatigue, loss of muscle tone and reduced flexibility and libido. The resultant psychological impact can include low self esteem, depression, anxiety and lack of confidence.
