Cancer pain is the result of cancer growth in human tissues or the pain associated with the treatment administered to remedy the disease. Cancer pain may result from the following:
- A tumor putting pressure on tissues, bones, nerves or organs
- Poor blood circulation due to blocked blood vessels
- Side effects of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation treatment
- Pain that is independent of the cancer, such as headaches, back pain or other common pains
Pain management begins with a complete assessment of the patient’s history and a full physical examination. We can help patients achieve ideal pain control with pharmacologic treatment, including opioids and nerve blocks. Treatments may vary depending on your condition. With these strategies, it is possible for 90% to 95% of patients to achieve pain control. Pain control at any stage of cancer can greatly improve your quality of life and open the way for you to focus on the things you enjoy.
