Treat pain from cancer in Dallas
Pain caused by cancer comes from several potential triggers and conditions. Pain may be dull, achy or sharp. It could be constant or infrequent; mild or severe.
Cancer cells destroy healthy tissue as it grows. This often results in chronic pain. That pain could start from the point where the cancer started or from other the places in the body.
Causes of Cancer Pain
The following are common causes of acute and chronic cancer pain.
- A tumor. A growing tumor can stretch an organ causing pain and discomfort. It can also put pressure on the surrounding nerves causing compression or pain, leading to other painful conditions.
- Radiation therapy. After the initial effects of radiation therapy wear off, patients sometimes experience painful symptoms.
- Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy can have a damaging effect on the body during and after the treatments. Additionally, numbness and a tingling sensation in the fingers and toes may result.
- Surgery. Surgery to remove tumors or other cancerous cells may result in chronic pain symptoms after the procedure.
