Effect of Exercise on Cervical Cancer

Keeping good nutrition and having a regular exercise regime can, at times, help to keep cancer cells from developing and spreading. Therefore, if you are attempting to prevent cancer or to keep it from spreading, engaging in light to moderate exercise can help.

If you do indeed need to go through a procedure to help treat your cancer, once you are feeling better and have been given the okay by your doctor, start a moderate stretching and exercise program. This will help you have more energy throughout the day.

Side Effects and Warnings

It is important to pick a type of exercise and durations that are compatible with your physical health. If you have a serious health condition, consult with your physician before starting an exercise program.

A health condition or injury may prevent you from engaging in certain types of exercise such as jogging or bike riding but walking. Gentler forms of movement such as stretching or yoga may still be safe and beneficial options.
