Cancer Pain

More often than not, an individual does not realize they have cancer until it has spread far enough along to be causing some sort of physical issue.  At this point, the person sees their doctor, is referred to another doctor, is eventually diagnosed with some type of cancer, and then begins the long and complicated process of treatment.

Along with chemotherapy, radiation and possible surgery, patients are regularly faced with an ever increasing level of acute pain.  Pain control, in the level sometimes required to treat metastasizing cancer, may bring with it a series of emotional and social implications that leave patients struggling for appropriate understanding.
