Millions of Americans today have a history of cancer, and for most of these individuals, living with cancer is the biggest challenge they have ever faced. One of the unfortunate realities of living with cancer is the physical pain. Not everyone with cancer will experience pain, but nearly 1 out of 3 people undergoing cancer treatment will experience pain at some point. Cancer pain can be managed with medication in addition to other treatments.
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.
