About Cancer Pain
Cancer pain can cause a variety of extremely uncomfortable symptoms that impact a patient’s ability to complete simple chores or enjoy various activities. Usually caused by a tumor pressing on the body part or because of chemotherapy, cancer pain can manifest in the nerves, soft tissue, or bone. In some cases, such as a mastectomy because of breast cancer, a patient might experience sensations known as phantom limb pain. No matter the type of cancer pain, it’s very important to let your doctor know if you have any issues. He or she can guide you in the right direction and recommend a pain management specialist, like Tricity Pain Associates, to help reduce your symptoms. Treatments for cancer pain are dependent on the cancer type, the location, and the severity of your symptoms. At Tricity Pain Associates Corpus Christi, our goal is to identify the reason for your pain and help you get back to doing the things you love. Please schedule an appointment to learn more about the cancer pain treatment options we offer.
