We hope this guide has helped you to understand treatments for pain and that it has given you useful information for dealing with pain. It is not intended to take the place of good communication between you and the health professionals who are caring for you. Remember that there are many ways to manage pain and that cancer pain can almost always be controlled.
Additional patient education materials (including information about
diet and nutrition, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, emotional
support, and the symptoms and treatment of many types of cancer)
are available from both the American Cancer Society and the
National Cancer Institute. Addresses and descriptions of the
American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute are
