The most common causes for cancer pain are mostly related to the traditional cancer treatments: chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. When treating post-operative pain, our patients have a faster and more effective healing process. In addition, in some cancer patients the tumor is causing pain because is pressing down on the bone, nerve or organ.
When treating cancer patients, our physicians can use different medications: non-opioids, opioids, antidepressants, antiepileptics, steroids, among others. However, it all depends on the results of the evaluation our medical team made.
One important characteristic of our treatment for cancer patients, is the palliative care our medical team offers. We provide support and guidance for our patients and their family, because at our Pain Clinic we understand they are experiencing more than physical pain, they are going through one of the hardest moments in their life.
