Cancer Pain Management

by Shearly (SU)
Getting a cancer diagnosis is a shock, to say the least. The C-word is a word no one wants or expects to hear, but it is an unfortunate reality to far too many people. Cancer can also be a genetic disease, meaning some are born genetically predisposed to developing certain types of cancer. People with hereditary mutations have a higher risk of developing the disease more than the average person. Early diagnosis and an increasing amount of treatment options give people more hope for battling cancer, but there can still be a great deal of pain that needs to be managed along the way.
