Cancer Pain + Q&A

What is cancer pain?

Cancer pain may occur from the cancer itself or cancer treatments. You may have pain if your cancerous tumor presses on an organ or nerve in the body. You can also have pain following surgery for your cancer or from chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

The type of pain you feel may range from a dull ache to sharp shooting pain. Your discomfort may last for a few days or weeks or turn into a chronic pain condition (lasting three or more months).

No matter what type of pain you feel, getting it under control is vital for your physical and mental well-being while undergoing treatments for your cancer and supporting your recovery.
