Cancer pain affects approximately 1 in 3 people who are receiving chemotherapy or other treatments. The pain might be dull and achy or sharp and throbbing. Fortunately, you can find relief from cancer pain with interventional pain medicine.
In Broward County, Florida, Anesco Interventional Pain Institute specializes in managing cancer pain without the use of pain pills.
What Causes Cancer Pain?
Cancer-related pain is typically caused by cancer treatments like chemotherapy or surgery. Pain may also be caused by the presence of a tumor that pushes against the spinal cord (spinal cord compression), pinches a nerve, or puts pressure on a bone or organ.
Why Should I Try Interventional Pain Medicine?
Interventional pain procedures can provide rapid relief for cancer pain that lasts for weeks or months. Common treatments for cancer pain include therapeutic injections, selective nerve blocks, and neurostimulation.
