Types of Cancer Pain
Effects of cancer pain are far-reaching for both patients and the families who support them.
The forms cancer may take are numerous, but they are almost always painful, both physically and psychologically. Physical pain from cancer may be the result of tumors coming into contact with abdominal organs or other tissues, or from the tumor putting pressure on nerves or bones. Carolinas Pain Center has Pain Specialists ready to help offer you options to relieve your tumor cancer pain.
Most importantly, helping cancer patients manage physical pain can also lead to greater peace of mind. A patient-centered, multidisciplinary approach is necessary in every case. Carolinas Pain Center located in Huntersville, NC and Charlotte, NC can help cancer patients get the upper hand in pain management.
