About this booklet

This booklet is for anyone who:

- has been told their cancer treatment may affect their heart
- had a heart condition before starting cancer treatment
- wants to know more about keeping their heart healthy.

It also has information about managing heart problems and looking after your heart.

We hope it helps you deal with some of the questions you may have. We cannot give advice about the best treatment for you. You should talk to your doctor, who knows your medical history.
