Peculiar article, exactly what I was looking for.
cancer is so terrible!!
Informative and interesting article. We will definitely share this with our patients and staff.
I’m going thru this now yes, it is totally scary to say the least.
Hello Jeanette, I am also just discovering I have radiation induced CAD on the LAD. I most likely got it from Linus, the linnear accellerator at BIMC. I have my first visit with “my cardiologist” this week.
I wonder why some women, like Ms. Kennedy, don’t notice the signs and get checked out before the damaged artery gets serious. Maybe they are just plain tired of going in for check-ups.
This is good information. Cancer surely is the silent killer.
