Heart and vascular diseases are often seen as men’s health issues, but women are equally at risk. Early signs of vascular disease in women can be misdiagnosed or underdiagnosed due to their atypical nature, which often resembles cardiac disease symptoms or may not be noticeable at all. Three specific vascular diseases pose significant risks to women: peripheral vascular disease (PVD), aneurysmal disease, and cerebrovascular (carotid) disease. These conditions can be particularly dangerous as they may start without any symptoms. PVD might cause atypical leg pain or walking difficulties, while carotid and aneurysmal diseases often remain silent until they reach advanced stages.
