And if a woman goes to an emergency rooom with symptoms of heart failure, he said, triage nurses need to factor in past breast cancer treatment when making the initial determination of whether she has heart failure. But for patients who are obese, smoke and have high cholesterol or blood pressure - or those already diagnosed with heart disease - the risk is even greater.

Being diagnosed with breast cancer is traumatic enough for a woman, but knowing that treatments to save her life could put her at risk of cardiovascular diseases, including heart failure, only heighten her anxiety. This should not scare the patient from taking treatment for breast cancer but should be in a consistent communication with their doctor about the kind of treatment being given to them. Dr. Susan Gilchrist, a cardiologist at MD Anderson Cancer Center who runs the only USA program for women's heart health after cancer, said she would treat hypertension, obesity, and other risk factors even more aggressively in a patient who had received doxorubicin, for instance.

This compares to 11,442 women who die from breast cancer.

Certain clinical management strategies may help reduce or prevent the adverse effects of breast cancer therapy.

While it's not a symptoms of the cancer itself, it could be a sign of the disease: frequent peeing at night is linked to a possible tumour causing the prostate gland to swell. HER-2 targeted therapies, for example, are created to combat more aggressive breast cancers, but can disrupt heart function as a result. That's a problem because heart failure caused by a chemo drug like doxorubicin is treated differently than heart failure from a heart attack, he said.

The NHS explains on its website that a man's age increases his risk of this type of cancer.
