Breast most cancers remedies might trigger coronary heart failure

In its first scientific statement on cardiovascular disease and breast cancer, the American Heart Association reported about heart tissue damage, coronary events and reduced heart function that may be associated with state-of-the-art breast cancer treatment.

Cardiovascular disease kills more women than breast cancer.

Nearly 48 million women in the United States have some kind of heart disease, compared with 3.3 million women with breast cancer, the AHA said.

Indicatively, women over 65 who have had breast cancer treatment in the past are more likely to die later than their heart than cancer.

Scientists have developed an interactive online tool to help breast cancer patients better understand their treatment options.

But throughout his treatment, Leia's dad talked openly with her about his illness.

Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society and a longtime critic of overtreating breast cancer, said the report is a reminder to oncologists that side effects of cancer treatments can do real harm to patients. Both can weaken the heart muscle. CVD poses a greater mortality risk for older women than breast cancer.

"It's not such a surprise, because obviously the population is aging and, hence, there will be more prostate cancer", Van Hemelrijck said. "Let's give these drugs and treatments to people who need them - the risk-benefit is more favorable - and let's do all we can to determine who is unlikely to benefit from the drugs and spare them the risks". However, the risk of heart failure decreases if the drug is administered slowly rather than by half.

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

Some prostate cancers are low-risk and do not need to be treated with radiotherapy, or operated on.

"Ideal breast cancer outcomes are reliant on coexisting cardiovascular health along the entire journey of breast cancer treatment", Mehta et al. wrote in the statement.

"I was getting up three, four, possibly five times".

"I became a gym rat", Brenneman said, frequently working out with a trainer, lifting weights and taking Zumba classes.

In the U.S. and the United Kingdom, about 12% of women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lifetimes, according to the National Cancer Institute and the organization Cancer Research UK.

Experts are still on the backfoot on what causes the disease and can't say why it affects men of African-Caribbean or African descent more than other races. One of the most common chemo treatments is doxorubicin, which is used for breast and other malignancies and used to be called adriamycin. The risk for both disorders increases with age, particularly after the onset of menopause. "But we also want patients and their doctors to be aware" that breast cancer drugs can damage the heart.

Sometimes, the impact on the heart is only temporary, and the heart can regain proper function once the breast cancer treatment completes, or when the patient also adds heart medicine into the mix. "There's no one-size-fits-all", she said.
