Adult cancer survivors at high risk for cardiovascular disease

A growing body of evidence suggests cancer survivors face elevated risk for cardiovascular disease years after diagnosis.
Now, findings from analysis of data on about 12,000 people followed over decades have strengthened the evidence indicating a strong link between cancer survival and cardiovascular disease (CVD), particularly heart failure.
“Patients diagnosed with cancer are living longer and, in many cases, dying from other conditions such as cardiovascular disease,” Roberta Florido, MD, MHS, director of cardio-oncology at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, said in an
