Exercise can cut risk of cancer returning
Regular exercise can cut by 40 percent the risk of cancer returning, say experts. Breast cancer patients who work out have more than a 40 percent lower risk of dying while prostate cancer patients 30 percent.
Exercise acts like a -wonder `drug` for survivors of some forms of the disease, according to Macmillan -Cancer Support.
Physical activity should be – `prescribed` by doctors after it was found not only to significantly help recovery but also prevent other long-term illnesses, the express.co.uk reported quoting the British-charity Monday.
Some cancers have high cure rates but others can return years after they were first treated.
Rather than patients being told to `rest up`, doctors should encourage them to get moving as soon as they feel able, researchers believe.
