Cancer Pain

Unfortunately, people who develop cancer, often suffer from cancer related pains. The cancer cells can invade bones, nerves, organs and other structures in the body. The pressure or the destruction of normal tissue can cause severe pain.

There are also patients that may have cancer without cancer related pain, but have pre-existing or develop painful conditions such as degenerative joint disease, degenerative disc disease, sciatica etc. after a diagnosis of cancer that can be treated to improve function and quality of life.

During our consultations, we obtain a complete medical history and gather as much information as possible on a patient's pain and it impact on their life. Our providers work with each patient on a one-to-one basis to determine the best treatment plan for their individual pain, utilizing the most advanced techniques to improve symptoms and allow for increased participation in everyday activities.

Treatments for patients with cancer focus on relieving symptoms and can vary depending on the cause and severity of a patient's individual condition, as well as their overall health and medical history. The most successful pain management programs are those that are specifically tailored to a patient’s needs, enabling them to maximize their independence and capability.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, our goal at Pacific Pain Medicine Consultants is to provide patient’s with quality pain management treatment while still optimizing the health and safety of our patients, providers, and staff.

We are providing telemedicine visits for new and established patients. Patients with severe pain that warrant more urgent treatment with injections will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We will need to evaluate the patient’s age, medical comorbidities, and risk factors as well as potential symptoms of respiratory infection in making a determination. Elective pain procedures and injections are deferred at this time in order to minimize the potential spread of the coronavirus and to ration personal protect equipment so it may be available where it is most critically needed.
