Cardiovascular Disease and Breast Cancer: Where These Entities Intersect

  • Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality in US women, though many perceive breast cancer as the number one threat to women’s health.

This statement also delves in detail on the monitoring, prevention and treatment strategies of CVD in breast cancer patients.
