Looking after your heart during cancer treatment
It’s important for everyone to look after their heart. If you have cancer, sometimes the treatments can affect your heart.

More information and support
In this blog, we’ve tried to give you some suggestions to help you keep a healthy heart during and after your treatment. Talk to your cancer doctor if you’re worried about any aspect of your treatment. If your treatment has finished and you have concerns about your heart health, talk to your doctor.
As well as the booklet, we have information on our website about how cancer treatments can affect your heart and what you can do.
