There is a significant overlap in the risk factors that contribute to the development of cancer and cardiovascular disease (CVD). This, in conjunction with the cardiotoxicity associated with several cancer treatments, significantly increases the risk of cancer survivors developing CVD. This Special Issue of Current Oncology aims to showcase research that uses interventions to reduce the risk of or manage CVD in cancer survivors. We invite researchers to address either one of the following topics or a related topic:
- lifestyle interventions to prevent/mitigate treatment-related cardiotoxicity;
- lifestyle interventions to promote cardiovascular health in cancer survivors;
- lifestyle interventions used to manage CVD in cancer survivors; or
- interventions aimed at reducing risk factors common to cancer and CVD.
