Breast Cancer Treatments Can Raise Heart Disease Risk In Women

Breast Cancer Treatments May Increase Heart Disease Trending News Today: AHA Warns of Serious Heart Disease Risks From Breast Cancer Chemotherapy

And if a woman goes to an emergency rooom with symptoms of heart failure, he said, triage nurses need to factor in past breast cancer treatment when making the initial determination of whether she has heart failure. "They should get the best treatment that's necessary for their breast cancer", she said, but patients should try to prevent or reduce those risks to their heart health by maintaining a healthy diet, exercising, and monitoring their blood pressure and cholesterol.

Prostate Cancer UK said the number of men dying from prostate cancer every year has overtaken the number of women dying from breast cancer, with 11,819 men now dying from prostate cancer in the UK every year - the equivalent of one man every 45 minutes.

"We hate to trade one disease for another", said Dr. Laxmi Mehta, an author of the statement and director of the Women's Cardiovascular Health Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. CVD poses a greater mortality risk for older women than breast cancer.

A man dies from prostate cancer every 45 minutes in the United Kingdom, with the disease overtaking breast cancer to become the third biggest cancer killer in the United Kingdom, new research shows. HER-2 is a kind of breast cancer.

"We assess the factors that are really important to patients, such as keeping their natural breast or avoiding radiation, and then we use that to generate a quantitative mapping of how those values relate to the treatments that they might be considering, and then show them visually", adds Hawley.

In addition, some treatments, such as antimetabolites, can cause heart arteries to spasm, which can cause chest pain symptoms but could also cause heart attacks.

"However, the good news is that many of these developments could be applied to prostate cancer and we're confident that with the right funding, we can dramatically reduce deaths within the next decade".

Prostate Cancer UK's Phil Wye has told LADbible: "Prostate cancer is a disease that can often present no symptoms so men may not know they have it".

So the study, published in the journal Heart in 2016, suggests that a single chemotherapy drug is associated with less damage to the heart compared with combining drugs.

"Knowledge about the risks and benefits of different treatment options remains pretty low, even among patients who have received treatment", says Sarah Hawley, professor of internal medicine at Michigan Medicine.

African-American men are more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer; Asian-American and Hispanic/Latino men are less likely to develop the disease.

It has been known for years that some breast cancer drugs (including some also used for other cancers) can weaken the heart muscle, causing heart failure.

"Oncologists are doing a terrific job of increasing survival rates by advancing the science and improving cancer treatments".

And she said that doctors routinely test the tumors of patients to assess the cancer's risk of recurrence.

The most common heart-related side effects of cancer therapy, which may not appear until long after treatment ends, include abnormal heart rhythms, valve problems or heart failure.
