Those suffering from cancer may experience pain caused by the disease. Cancer affects the cells and causes tumors that can press on bones, nerves, and nearby organs causing discomfort. The pain can vary in intensity depending on the type or location of the cancer.
Treatment of cancer pain comes in a variety of forms, including over-the-counter or prescribed medications. Treatment of cancer itself may also reduce pain as the cancerous tissues are removed or destroyed through surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.
Those suffering from cancer-related pain are often hesitant to seek relief due to worry over additions or side effects of medication. However, the team at Schneck can help prescribe treatment options to help patients live more comfortably.
