What is a vascular cancer or vascular disease?
Peripheral vascular disease refers to a disease that affects the circulatory system outside of the brain and heart. This is the most common disease of the arteries. Vascular disease is caused when fatty material is built up within the arteries. It mixes with other material and then hardens. This blocks the artery and weakens its walls. The result is that blood flow will be restricted or sometimes totally blocked. Peripheral vascular disease can also be caused by blood clots, diabetes, infections or structural defects. Like other cancers, smoking is a risk factor that can increase the chance of developing this cancer.
