Cancer pain is a complication of cancer that not everyone may deal with. The amount of pain depends on the type of cancer, the stage, any metastasizes, and the individual’s tolerance to pain. Cancer treatments like radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery can cause pain and may lead to chronic pain. Chemotherapy causes chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, radiation treatment can lead to neuropathy and other issues, and surgery can result in post-surgical pain syndromes.
