Cancer pain is one of the most feared entities in pain management. Around 75% of patients with cancer suffer some type of pain. Cancer pain management is difficult, as it often involves incidental pain, episodic pain, neuropathic pain, and impaired cognitive skills.
It is important to remember that although a patient has cancer, the source of pain may be unrelated to the cancer itself. If you have a cancer diagnosis, the physicians of Illinois Pain Institute will also look for other causes for the painful condition.
