Abstract

Although the incidence of cancer and cancer-related deaths has declined in recent years, undertreatment of cancer-related pain continues to be a significant problem. By thoroughly assessing chronic malignant pain (CMP) as it relates to cancer and achieving a more complete understanding of the CMP syndromes experienced by cancer patients, psychiatrists and neurologists can formulate accurate diagnoses of patients' clinical pain syndromes and construct well-defined, individual management plans for each patient.
