Previous research has shown that chemotherapy weakens the heart, but the AHA is concerned that the link to cancer drugs may be missed if cardiovascular symptoms are experienced years after treatment, according to the article.

Breast cancer patients, particularly older patients, are more likely to die of CVD than breast cancer, and patients may benefit from management strategies that weigh the cancer benefits versus heart risks, authors of the statement wrote in Circulation.

Herceptin and similar drugs for a specific type of breast cancer can cause heart failure.

Identifying at-risk patients is crucial.

It's not unusual, Brawley said, for a breast cancer patient who underwent chemo years earlier to wake up one day with swollen ankles and shortness of breath, symptoms of congestive heart failure.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and treating cardiovascular risk factors aggressively can help prevent heart attack, stroke and disability, said Kuller, who also has studied cardiovascular disease and breast cancer. Delivery methods, such as doxorubicin as an intravenous infusion instead of a bolus dose, or liposomal formulations of doxorubicin compared to standard preparations, may preserve the efficacy of therapy while reducing the incidence of cardiotoxicity.

Kim Kardashian West has responded to claims of cultural appropriation
For a start, "Superman" got involved to make sure Kim was "PG-13" and others quickly hopped on the trend to help cover up Kim. Kim Kardashian has shown her fiery side this week as she hit back at a load of haters on Instagram .

The Cancer Surveillance and Outcomes Research Team at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center developed the iCanDecide tool, which serves as a tailored decision aid for breast cancer patients faced with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and other treatment choices.

But while many physicians praised the AHA report, some, such as Deanna Attai, a breast surgeon at the University of California at Los Angeles, anxious it could discourage women with high-risk cancer from getting aggressive treatment. "The problem is they can affect the heart if they are not monitored". Older postmenopausal breast cancer survivors are now more likely to die of diseases other than breast cancer, and cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death.

Lung and bowel cancers remained the top two cancer killers in the UK. For example, some studies suggested that administration of doxorubicin by slow infusion rather than bolus may minimize damage to the heart.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in women, accounting for 1 in 3 deaths. More studies will need to be done to confirm whether the results of the smaller studies are seen in larger groups of patients.

Prostate cancer tends to develop very slowly, so you can live for decades without symptoms, or even needing treatment. And it stressed that breast cancer survivors can improve their chances of a long, healthy life by exercising regularly and sticking to a healthy diet. It is important to recognize the overlap of heart disease and breast cancer as both entities impact survival. Beta-blockers, aspirin and statins are all familiar drugs that can reduce the risk of both illnesses, and certain non-medical treatments, like exercise, can make a big difference, too.

Another treatment, radiation, can cause blockages in the heart, but doctors are developing more-targeted radiation to reduce the risks of those problems. "Health care is changing such that a cancer patient often does not see an oncologist after completion of therapy".
