Cancer-Related Pain

Cancer has impacted the lives of numerous people as well as their families. It comes in many varieties and degrees of severity, and it is usually associated with pain.

Cancer pain can be the result of the tumor impinging on nerves, bones, abdominal organs or other tissues.

It can also be caused by cancer itself or by certain treatments, such as surgery.

Management of cancer pain requires a thoughtful, multidisciplinary and patient-centered approach. Our pain specialists offer a variety of techniques to help manage cancer pain.

Our healthcare team can help you learn about the types of pain that people with cancer may have, medicines and other ways to help manage pain, as well as how to work to find the best ways to control any pain you are having.
