Nearly one in three people will be diagnosed with cancer, and many of these patients will suffer from related cancer pain. Cancer-associated pain is widely feared by cancer patients, but knowledge about the causes and management of cancer pain has increased dramatically in recent years and many new treatment options are available. This comprehensive book discusses the unique characteristics of cancer pain, including its pathophysiology, clinical assessment, diagnosis, pharmacological management and nonpharmacological treatment. The internationally recognized authors are leaders in cancer pain research, and they apply their first-hand knowledge in summarizing the principal issues in the clinical management of cancer pain. This state-of-the-art book cohesively addresses the full range of disciplines regularly involved in cancer pain management, including pharmacology, communication studies, and psychology. Cancer Pain is a scholarly but accessible text that will be an essential resource for physicians, nurses, and medical students who treat patients suffering from cancer pain.
