Pain And Palliative care

Pain and palliative care

Dealing with pain can be quite tough for cancer patients, especially when they have reached the advanced stage of the disease. Most of the pain in cancer patients is caused when the tumour presses against the bones, nerves, or other organs in the body. Sometimes, it’s the treatment itself that causes the pain in addition to the emotional, social, and financial impact of cancer treatment.

Treatment Duration

Palliative care may last for weeks, months, or years, and the relief of moderate to severe pain during that time can greatly improve quality of life. The biggest problem with palliative care is that many people are referred for care too late. By starting this type of care early, and by using the right type of pain management, nearly all pain problems can be relieved or reduced.
