About one-third of patients being treated for cancer have some type of pain, and each person’s pain is unique. It is important to know that cancer pain can be managed. With today's knowledge of cancer pain and the availability of pain-relieving therapies, no one should have to suffer from unrelieved pain. Although cancer pain can be relieved, surveys have shown that pain is often undertreated in many patients.
Because each patient’s stage of disease and diagnosis differ, we work to find the best combination of pain-controlling treatments so that our patients can experience the best possible quality of life.
