Cancer and cardiovascular disease are leading causes of death in many parts of the world, and cardio-oncology is at the intersection of heart problems in cancer patients. For both diseases occurring in the same patient, there are many explanations. Risk factors for coronary heart disease (CD) and cancer include age, smoking and obesity. The effects of radiation therapy and chemotherapy in long-term survivors of a malignancy may be other causes. These treatments have a direct effect on the heart, which in some cases requires surgical correction. Malignancy may also occur during long-term follow-up after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The growth of medical facilities also makes the identification of heart disease and treatable cancers more likely.
