Cardiovascular disease and breast cancer already have several overlapping risk factors, such as age and obesity, and current lifesaving breast cancer treatments could have negative impacts on heart health, according to the statement. 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. This compares to 11,442 women who die from breast cancer.
"This should not deter or scare patients from undergoing breast cancer treatment, but should allow them to make informed decisions with their doctor on the best cancer treatment for them", Mehta continued.
"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. said Michelle LeBaron of Northern Utah, now 58, who was diagnosed and treated for stage 3B inflammatory breast cancer in 2004.
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.
Among the chemotherapies used in breast cancer that may compromise cardiac function, doxorubicin - or Adriamycin - and trastuzumab, also known as Herceptin.
In addition, a drug called dexrazoxane that could reduce cell damage has recently been approved for patients with metastatic breast cancer who receive high doses of doxorubicin. Administering doxorubicin more slowly can be both beneficial and protective, studies have shown, and result in lower rates of heart failure.
Other therapies could also affect the heart arteries and cause the development of coronary artery disease or blockages, the study added. And, some treatments - like antimetabolites - can cause spasm of the heart arteries, which can cause chest pain symptoms but could lead to heart attacks as well.
The American Society of Clinical Oncology also now has guidelines in place for oncologists to consider regarding chemotherapy drugs and heart health, Rhee said.
In the USA 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.
"As the population ages, there will likely be more women with breast cancer, CVD, or both", Mehta et al. said. As much as 80% of attributable risk for CVD can be eliminated by attention to modifiable risk factors, including a healthy diet, abstinence from tobacco, maintenance of a healthy weight, blood pressure control, a favorable lipid profile, diabetes management, and physical activity.
"Fortunately, with the advances in breast cancer treatment, there has been a growing number of survivors".
Despite prostate cancer overtaking breast cancer to become the third biggest cancer killer, the shift does not represent a worsening situation for those with the disease.
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.
On Thursday, Feb. 1, the AHA published its first comprehensive scientific warning about the serious link between breast cancer treatments and cardiovascular disease.
