Having cancer does not always mean having pain. But for people who do have pain, there are many different kinds of medicines, different ways to take the medicines, and non-drug methods that can help relieve pain.
CANCER PAIN DOESN’T HAVE TO BE DEBILITATING – IT IS TREATABLE
LET US HELP YOU
Pain can affect all parts of your life. If you have pain, you may not be able to take part in your normal day-to-day activities. You may have trouble sleeping and eating, and be irritable with the people you love. It’s easy to get frustrated, sad, and even angry when you’re in pain. Family and friends do not always understand how you are feeling, and you may feel very alone in your distress.
You should never accept pain as a normal part of having cancer. All pain can be treated, and most pain can be controlled or relieved. When their pain is controlled, many people can sleep and eat better, enjoy being with family and friends, and continue with their work and hobbies.
