Keeping active after treatment for womb cancer

Being physically active helps keep your weight healthy, and reduces stress, tiredness, and the risk of other health conditions. There’s some evidence that taking regular physical activity may help to reduce the risk of womb cancer coming back, and of getting some other cancers. It also reduces the risk of bone thinning (osteoporosis) in women who had an early menopause.

Your GP or cancer specialist may be able to refer you to special exercise groups run by professional trainers.

We have more information about physical activity and cancer treatment, which you may find helpful.
