It is not only radiation treatments for lung cancer that cause heart problems. I had radiation for Hodgkin’s Disease and suffered a heart attack and had to have triple bypass surgery. Due to the radiation I’ve had thyroid cancer, kidney cancer and now radiation induced heart disease. People need to be informed that there are risks involved. My doctor was not aware of the connection and never even checked for heart problems.
