As the number of cancer survivors increase researchers need to assess the evidence for the role of lifestyle in changing well-being, cancer recurrence and overall morbidity and mortality. Diet, alcohol, physical activity and excess body weight are implicated in the primary prevention of breast and colorectal cancer but what is the impact of lifestyle change in people living with the disease? This session aims to provide an overview of evidence and insight to three on-going lifestyle trials (including the challenges and issues of design and implementation).
