Abstract

Prostatectomy is an effective and a common treatment for localised prostate cancer. Despite a reduction in prostate cancer mortality, this procedure has negative implications to physical function, continence and sexual health. Exercise has been shown to counteract this spectrum of associated disorders. Hence, exercise as an intervention strategy can reduce many adverse effects. Effective investigation into the relationship between pre-surgical exercise and the adverse effects of surgery has the potential to provide cancer survivors with faster recovery and better quality of life.
