Dealing with cancer is an incredibly difficult process, and it doesn’t need to be made more difficult with symptoms of pain. The Pain Management Center specializes in cancer pain to help patients in Hamilton, Linwood, Turnersville and Voorhees, NJ., achieve long-lasting relief.
What is Cancer Pain?
Cancer pain is pain that arises from cancer itself, the spread of the cancer, or cancer treatments. As tumors grow, they may push on nerves and organs, which can cause pain in the affected regions. Oftentimes, patients who are undergoing intense chemotherapy treatment experience a variety of painful sensations. The radiation can leave behind scars or painful sensations throughout the body, and could leave your body with damaged tissue and nerves. Fortunately, The Pain Management Center offers treatments for all types of cancer pain, helping patients find relief and focus on overcoming cancer.
