Breast cancer treatment increase heart disease risks

Breast Cancer And Hearts

Several studies have found positive associations between HRT and CVD in older postmenopausal women and women with existing coronary disease.

Although there are an estimated 47.8 million women in the US who are living with cardiovascular diseases and approximately 3 million breast cancer survivors, many people regard breast cancer as the primary threat to women's health.

"The statement really is there to provide a concise document for the medical community on the overlap between heart disease and breast cancer in terms of risk factors, in terms of the treatment and preventative therapies", she said.

Doctor Laxmi Mehta, of the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, was the primary author.

An interactive online tool has been shown to improve patient knowledge of breast cancer treatment options, compared with a static informational website. It also kills more Americans than all cancers combined.

"We have taught and seen these problems". "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".

Tariq Ramadan is the professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Oriental Studies at St Antony's College, Oxford. Four other women have accused Ramadan of making sexual advances toward them while they were students, BBC reported .

Though no single gene can predict simultaneous diagnoses of breast cancer and CVD, scientists have uncovered some genetic clues linked to cancer risk.

Prostate cancer tends to develop very slowly, so you can live for decades without symptoms, or even needing treatment.

But Dr. Pina and the AHA said that women should not stop their cancer treatments. Myocardial strain imaging with speckle-tracking echocardiography is an effective predictor of cardiac dysfunction in patients receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer. She said she was especially concerned about women with HER2-positive and triple negative breast cancer.

Radiation can affect arteries and spur narrowing or blockages. Meanwhile, roughly 10 times that number die from heart disease, according to heart disease and stroke statistics released in January and published in Circulation.

HER-2 directed therapies are created to combat particularly aggressive forms of breast cancer, but the treatments might be doing more harm than good, research has found. Both can weaken the heart muscle. "Oncologists and cardiologists are well aware of this and minimize the dosage as possible to reduce the potential of heart failure".

Furthermore, women who have had breast cancer are more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than women without a history of breast cancer.

Turkey presses ahead with Afrin offensive
Manning said he did not know if the USA has agreed to stop arming and training its Syrian allies, another request by Turkey. So far, Turkey has reported the killing of 712 militants, and the destruction of more than 400 militants facilities.

Some small studies suggest that administering common chemotherapy agents in new ways may reduce heart disease risks.

The report said some heart damage, including the kind caused by drug Herceptin sometimes can be reversed.

Dr Tochi Okwuosa: "The problem is, if you are at risk, and not everybody is at risk, you get through treatment, you get back to your regular life and all is well until all is not well, and somebody tells you, 'You have heart failure'". However, heart disease prior to, during or after cancer treatment can impact outcomes.

Those most are risk of developing the disease are men over 49 years old, and men of African-Caribbean or African descent.

Prostate cancer killed 11,819 men in the United Kingdom in 2015.

The American Heart Association's statement is "long overdue", said Dr. Lewis Kuller, a professor and past chair of the department of epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, who was not involved in the statement. "Eating a healthy diet is imperative for both", said Mehta.

Russian Federation to set up committee to reform Syrian constitution
A copy of the final statement, seen by AFP in Arabic, did not mention the fate of Moscow's ally President Bashar al- Assad. Monitoring groups say Syria's war has killed nearly half a million people and wounded hundreds of thousands more.
