About Breast Cancer and Exercise

Exercise is one of the best ways to maintain strength, energy, mobility and cope with cancer related fatigue during and after cancer treatment. You should find an exercise that fits your interest and the needs of your body. If you don't feel comfortable exercising on your own, you can work with a physical therapist or a qualified trainer.

About Gynecologic Cancer and Lymphedema

Lymphedema is when fluid (lymph) collects anywhere in your body and causes swelling (edema). Lymphedema can be a long-term side effect of some treatments for gynecologic cancers. It is not preventable but there are treatment options available. You should contact your care provider if you notice any new swelling, weight gain, or if your clothes or shoes are feeling tighter than usual.
