Some of conditions causing cancer pain. We strictly advise to take expert opinion on diagnosis & treatment.
Cancer pain can take many forms and is experienced differently by each patient. Cancer is a devastating diagnosis that affects people on several different levels.Many people with cancer eventually experience pain due to their condition. Approximately twenty percent of patients with newly diagnosed malignancies complain of pain.Thirty percent of patients undergoing cancer treatment complain of pain, and up to ninety percent of those with advanced cancer experience pain (Grossman 1994).
Abdominal pain/ pancreatic cancer
Most patients with early-stage stomach cancers have no symptoms of the disease. In other cases, a person with stomach cancer may mistake their symptoms for a common stomach virus. Abdominal discomfort or pain in the abdomen above the navel could be a symptom of stomach cancer. Also, swelling or fluid build-up in the abdomen may also be caused by stomach cancer.
Spinal and bone involvement with cancer
Cancers that form in other parts of the body have a tendency to spread, or metastasize, to the spine. When this happens, cancer weakens the spine bones, making them susceptible to compression fractures. Doctors may suspect unrecognized cancer if a patient has a compression fracture without any particular cause or reason.
Pain from cancer surgery and chemotherapy
BTCP is known as a “flare” of pain and can be severe. Chemotherapy or radiation-induced pain – is most often a form of nerve pain. Commonly used chemotherapy drugs, such as Vincristine Sulfate, Paclitaxel or Cisplatin, may cause what is known as chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy or paresthesia.
