Abstract

About half of cancer patients experience pain, most commonly due to their primary cancer. Pain severity is at least moderate for most patients experiencing cancer-related pain. Pain may also persist in long-term cancer survivors. Cancer-related pain adds to mood disturbance and disability in cancer patients. Despite the frequent occurrence and substantial impact from cancer pain, both patient and provider barriers limit the identification and treatment of pain in cancer patients.
