Cancer Pain


Cancer pain can be caused by the tumour itself or by the cancer treatment. A tumour pressing against a nerve, bone or organ can cause anything from a burning, tingling sensation to a dull ache or a sharp cramp. Pain can also happen as a side effect of cancer treatments such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

Being in pain can add to the physical and emotional burden of cancer and cancer treatment so it is important to seek help if you are experiencing any discomfort. Cancer pain can make even the simplest tasks more difficult and it can leave you feeling low and tired just when you need your energy the most.

Cancer pain can be treated in different ways depending on the cause and severity. Medication may be enough to relieve some kinds of cancer pain, but in other cases additional treatments such as acupuncture or nerve blocks may be needed to enable you to enjoy the best possible quality of life.
