Cardio-Oncology is a relatively new field in medicine that focuses on the cardiovascular health of patients undergoing cancer treatment. As cancer therapies, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and certain targeted therapies, have improved over time, more people are surviving cancer.

Cardio-Oncologists are specialized healthcare professionals who collaborate with oncologists and other members of the healthcare team to prevent, monitor, and manage cardiovascular complications in cancer patients. They assess the patient's cardiovascular risk factors before starting cancer treatment, monitor their heart health during treatment, and provide interventions or treatments as needed to minimize the risk of cardiovascular complications.
