Contrary to its name, cardio-oncology does not involve cancer of the heart but rather the effect of cancer and its therapy on heart health. Therefore, if you have been diagnosed with cancer at any stage and are being treated for it or have received any form of chemo or radiation therapy, it may be a good idea to give a cardiologist a visit. You may know that cancer treatments that involve chemotherapy and radiation have many side effects. These side effects do not spare the heart. Our cardiologists use unique diagnostic techniques to catch such conditions early on. Additionally, they work in close coordination with your oncology team to make sure the treatments don’t interfere, leaving you with the best chance of success.
