Exercise can reduce the risk of death in men with prostate cancer. Although the effect was demonstrated over 10 years ago, exercise medicine is still not recognised as a critical therapy in cancer management. Nevertheless, the evidence base is building, and an ongoing randomised controlled trial has been designed to assess whether a targeted and highly sophisticated exercise medicine intervention causes a survival advantage in men with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer.
