Answer

The impact of physical activity on treatment outcome in patients with cancer is not well defined in the literature. However, modest levels of physical activity during cancer treatment may provide benefits with respect to increasing appetite, maintaining mobility and muscle tone, and enhancing a sense of emotional well-being.
