Cancer-related pain is a pain that develops from many different factors. From the medications one takes to cancer itself, the list of factors can vary. The patient experiences pain as individual as the person. Consequently, the pain experienced is dependent upon several different factors.

The cancer type, stage of the disease, and the patient’s ability to cope with the pain are some of the factors. Treatments can vary to get rid of the origin of the pain from chemotherapy and radiation to surgery. Additionally, there are non-prescription medications and prescription medications that can help too. These prescribed medications include opioid medications such as codeine, morphine/hydromorphine, oxycodone, methadone, and fentanyl.

Many patients that have problems or trouble taking medication. As a result, many forms are available for different patients. These forms include tablets, dissolvable tablets, injectable medication, in a suppository, through an I.V. and through a pain patch placed on the skin.
