Cancer pain may be caused by cancer or by medical procedures used to diagnose or treat the cancer, like radiation or surgery.
There are many ways to treat cancer pain. Tell your doctor about your pain. Getting it treated can improve your quality of life at every stage of the disease.
Cancer pain can be controlled in almost every case. You may not be pain-free, but the pain can usually be kept at a level you can bear.
