Physical activity is associated with a lower incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC); however, the relationship of physical activity with CRC survival is not yet clear. We evaluated the association between pre-diagnostic physical activity and CRC survival, overall and accounting for tumor-markers associated with CRC survival: BRAF and KRAS mutation status and microsatellite instability (MSI) status.
