A team at the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre in Queensland will conduct the research, which has been dubbed the Global Action Plan 4 Global Prostate Cancer study. The Movember Foundation is funding the effort.

    Cancer recurrence is cancer that comes back after treatment. Exercise has been shown to improve cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, body composition, fatigue, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, happiness, and several quality of life factors in cancer survivors. Research has found no harmful effects on patients with cancer from moderate exercise and, in fact, has demonstrated that those who exercised regularly had 40% to 50% less fatigue, the primary complaint during advanced cancer treatments on Long Island. Exercise is known to improve cardiovascular function and to protect bones.
