Complete Care for Your Cancer Pain and Its Causes

Pain is a terrible companion. It monopolizes your thoughts, steals your peace, and insists on invading every moment of your life. At AdventHealth, we are here to rid your life of this interloper. Once we pinpoint the cause, we offer expert management of cancer pain — and we can help you find short-term and long-term relief. Depending on the type of cancer you have, your pain can originate from a variety of causes, including:

  • Blockage of an Organ or Canal in Your Body
  • Infection or Inflammation
  • Metastasis, or When Cancer Cells Spread Throughout The Body
  • Pain from a Tumor Pressing on Body Organs, Nerves, or Bones
  • Poor Blood Circulation
  • Psychological Responses to Tension, Depression, or Anxiety
  • Side Effects from Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy, or Surgery
  • Stiffness from Inactivity

Pain doesn't have to be your constant companion. Let our advanced cancer pain treatments ease your discomfort, so you can enjoy your life without having to deal with the constant presence of pain.

Medications and Integrative Cancer Pain Treatments

You have your mind set on recovery. We do, too. Lean on us and let’s manage your cancer pain together. Our experienced physicians provide care that fits your needs, prescribing pain medication based on the type of cancer you have and the severity of your discomfort. For mild pain, your doctor may recommend over-the-counter (OTC) medicines that do not get in the way of your ongoing care, including:

  • Acetaminophen
  • Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), Including Aspirin and Ibuprofen

If you’re experiencing severe neck, leg, back or joint pain caused by cancer, your care may involve a combination of OTC medications and prescription pain relievers, including:

  • Codeine
  • Corticosteroids
  • Fentanyl
  • Hydrocodone
  • Hydromorphone
  • Morphine
  • Oxycodone

We want to maximize your pain relief and often recommend combining medication with integrative wellness options like physical therapy, biofeedback, or nerve blocks, a technique that injects pain medicine into an affected nerve. For chronic pain caused by a mass, you may have the option of radiation therapy to shrink the tumor or surgery to remove it. Whatever your cancer pain management plan, we’ll make sure it’s tailored to you. And puts you on the most pain-free path on your cancer journey.
