About Cancer Pain
Major causes of cancer-related pain include:
- Pain from a tumor. A tumor can cause pain if it presses into the nearby tissue, nerves, bones or organs.
- Spinal cord compression. When a tumor spreads to the spine, it can press on the spinal cord. This can cause back or neck pain.
- Pain from treatment. Some people have pain from chemotherapy, radiation treatment and other cancer treatments.
