Pain is an unfortunate side effect of cancer, and it can derive from the cancer itself or the medications used to treat cancer. No matter the cause, it’s important for patients to recognize that they do not have to live in chronic, debilitating pain due to their cancer diagnosis. The management of pain is important on a number of levels. People who are suffering from excess pain may have a harder time fighting off infection. They may suffer from emotional distress and stress that can further impede their quality of life. Above all, there is no benefit to suffering needlessly from cancer related pain. By taking cancer pain seriously and addressing it properly, we can work toward better prognoses and better quality of life for our patients with cancer.
