    By Steven Reinberg HealthDay Reporter. MONDAY, Oct. 28 (HealthDay News) -- Radiation therapy for early stage breast cancer carries a small, but real, risk of heart disease, new research finds. The lifetime risk ranges from percent to percent, depending on how the radiation was delivered and a woman's overall risk for heart disease, the researchers report.

Radiation therapy for throat cancer involves sending high-energy beams of particles through the skin toward the tumor. When the beams reach the tumor, they can destroy cancer cells by damaging their DNA. Radiation therapy is known for its particular effectiveness against head and neck tumors.

Jul 10,  · This book summarizes the research which links cancer and EMF, describes different potential sources of EMF radiation and gives practical advice to help reduce the risk of EMF’s. It gives advice for ordinary household electrical current and the newer developments in 5/5(11). Radiation can increase the risk of heart disease and death as observed in previous breast cancer RT regimens.

Therapeutic radiation increases the risk of a subsequent cardiovascular event (i.e., heart attack or stroke) by to 4 times a person's normal rate, aggravating factors appligraphic-groupe.com: D.

Radiation, or radiotherapy, involves the use of a beam of high-energy rays to kill cancer cells in your breast or lymph nodes under your armpit or chest wall.

Radiation therapy is usually recommended after a lumpectomy, when the breast cancer has spread to the lymph nodes under the armpit, or after a mastectomy and the [ ].

The amount of radiation given and a person’s age at the time of the treatment for Hodgkin’s disease or other cancer play important roles in breast cancer risk. In general, the more radiation a person is exposed to and the younger the age at exposure, the greater the risk [ ].
