The number of men dying from prostate cancer has overtaken the number of women dying from breast cancer for the first time, with the disease now the UK's third biggest cancer killer.
It turns out, some breast cancer treatments can damage your heart. Improvements in early detection and treatment of breast cancer have led to an increasing number of breast cancer survivors who are at risk of long-term cardiac complications from cancer treatments.

"The report may bring this problem to the front of mind among emergency medicine and internal medicine doctors who are caring for these women", he said. "We need to bust that myth that it is just an old man's disease that you don't need to think is significant", she added.
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'".

The interconnection doesn't end when the cancer is gone. It showed that the rate of major coronary events among the women increased 7.4% for each additional gray, or unit, in the average radiation dose delivered to the heart.
But Prostate Cancer UK is concerned that much less funding is spent on research than on breast cancer, at a time when the mortality from breast cancer has fallen much more sharply. But women may benefit from a new approach to treatment that weighs the benefits of specific therapies against potential damage to the heart.
For example, drugs called anthracyclines - such as doxorubicin - can damage heart muscle cells, sometimes leading to chronic heart failure. Among those who received a combination of anthracycline and trastuzumab, another chemotherapy drug, 12.5% developed that systolic dysfunction. Herceptin studies have found a heart failure incidence of up to 4 percent, for instance.
