Abstract

The benefits of physical activity (PA), even of low intensity, on disease progression, urinary symptoms, psychological wellbeing, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of prostate cancer (PCa) patients have been documented by several studies (Richman 2011; Chipperfield 2014; Thorsen 2008). To our knowledge, there are no studies investigating the effects of PA on HRQoL among PCa patients in Active Surveillance (AS). The present research aimed to study the relationship between the level of PA performed by patients in AS and their HRQoL.
