What is pain management?  Pain from treatment or the cancer itself can effect your quality of life. So, controlling pain is a crucial part of your care.  The goal of pain management is to have the most pain control with the least amount of medication (to limit side effects).  This allows you to get the most benefit from the treatments aimed at reducing your cancer.  Let your health care provider(s) know about any pain or discomfort you have.
