Cardio Oncology is a team-based program where physicians who specialize in cancer care and heart care work together with patients at any stage of their treatment journey. Our care teams build treatment plans for those who face future cancer treatments and help patients that are recovering from cancer treatments.

New treatments for cancer are allowing patients to live longer after the diagnosis of cancer. There will be 20 million American cancer survivors living in the U.S. by 2026. These new treatments carry a risk for heart problems.

Reasons to be evaluated in our Cardio-Oncology Clinic:

  • History of receiving or going to receive a treatment drug toxic to the heart
  • Any concerning heart symptoms before, during or after chemotherapy
  • If you have a history of cardiac disease
  • Two heart health risk factors
    • Family history of heart disease
    • Smoking
    • Obesity
    • High blood pressure
    • High cholesterol
    • Physical inactivity
    • Poor diet

After seeing your oncologist and designing a personalized treatment plan with cancer therapies, a cardiologist who understands these issues will be able to guide strategies to monitor for heart problems during and after cancer treatment. If you are having symptoms that you think could involve your heart, talk to your cancer doctor (oncologist) or primary care doctor right away. Make sure to learn about what side effects can be caused by your cancer treatment. That way you can help to inform your health care team.

Questions to ask your provider:

  • Am I receiving any cancer treatment that could affect my heart either now or in the future?
  • What are my risk factors for developing cardiac side effects from treatment?
  • Do I need to see a cardiologist during or after cancer treatment?
  • If my cancer treatment could damage my heart, how will my heart be monitored during cancer treatment?
