Cancer Pain Management

It is not uncommon to experience pain from cancer or cancer treatment. Pain may be caused by a tumor, or it may result from surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

But you don’t have to accept it. Mercy physicians and staff can help you manage the pain and make your treatment as comfortable as possible.

Whether your pain is mild or severe, constant or intermittent, or sharp or dull, we can recommend medications and treatments to control the discomfort. Our cancer pain management options include:

  • Over-the-counter and prescription-strength pain relievers
  • Opioid medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Other therapies such as nerve blocks, acupuncture, massage and meditation.

At Mercy, you’ll find skilled, experienced cancer specialists who focus on providing compassionate care. We'll provide the support you need to stay strong as you recover from cancer, so you can get back to doing what you love.
