After treatment for breast and ovarian cancer, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle as being overweight may increase the risk of a recurrence. to determine what is a healthy weight, your doctor may refer to your Body Mass Index (BMI).
BMI is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. BMI can be used as a screening tool but is not diagnostic of the body fatness or health of an individual. A trained healthcare provider should perform appropriate health assessments in order to evaluate an individual’s health status and risks.
To calculate your BMI, see the BMI Calculator.


Exercise and Health Living

While it may be difficult at times, it is important to stay as active as possible both during and after treatment. Getting regular exercise is important not only for your overall health but can help lessen certain side effects of treatment and may help reduce risk of recurrence.

Exercise can sometimes be a challenge, particularly if you have been in treatment or have had surgery. Always ask your doctor before you start a new exercise regimen and to discuss which exercises are best for you.
