Cancer survivorship has been greatly impacted with the development of modern cancer treatments. While significant strides have been made in managing many types of cancer, now physicians face new challenges. Over the past decades, cardiovascular events in cancer survivors have increased in prevalence, driving the development of multidisciplinary cardio-oncology programs. Additionally, as cancer patients live longer, their risk of developing secondary cardiovascular events increases. The rapid development of novel cancer therapies will continue to generate questions of cardiac risk and cardiac protection in cancer patients over time. We wish to outline the development of cardio-oncology in its present state, and provide future perspectives for the discipline.
