Treatments That Work
Over half of patients with cancer experience some form of pain or discomfort, which may continue even after the cancer is gone. The symptoms of cancer pain vary from person to person. The amount of pain may depend on the type of cancer, the stage or extent of the disease and the individual’s tolerance for pain.
At the Pain Institute of Long Island, our compassionate professionals understand both the physical and emotional aspects of cancer pain. Our first priority is learning about you and the obstacles that you face every day.
Why Does it Hurt?
Pain from cancer can come from multiple sources including chemotherapy, radiationtherapy, surgery to treat the cancer, as well as the tumor itself.
A tumor can press against bones, nerves, and internal organ causing a chronic ache that never seems to go away. Cancer pain may also occur as a result of radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Radiation or chemotherapy-induced pain often triggers an uncomfortable burning sensation referred to as neuropathic pain.
