Cancer Pain Q & A

What kind of medication helps with cancer pain?

The medication that works best for cancer pain varies from one patient to another. If you don’t get relief from non-opioid medications, Dr. Chowdhury may prescribe an opioid such as codeine or oxycodone. Your medication may be a combination of opioids and non-opioids like acetaminophen.

To ensure your comfort and safety, Dr. Chowdhury closely monitors your medication and will need to see you for regular appointments as long as you’re taking the oral medication. Often, oral medication works best when combined with other non-medication treatments like epidural injections or alternative therapies.

What are my non-medication treatment options for cancer pain?

Center for Pain Management offers a variety of pain solutions, and Dr. Chowdhury will work with you to find the best solution for maximum pain relief. Options include the following:

  • Epidural injections: steroids and anesthesia injected into the spine
  • Trigger point injections: steroids and/or anesthesia injected in specific small areas
  • Implantation therapy: pump implanted into the spine to consistently release morphine
  • Radiofrequency ablation: heated probe applied to targeted areas to deactivate painful nerves

Cancer pain treatment at Center for Pain Management is unique to you and your specific needs. Dr. Chowdhury and the whole team are dedicated to helping you find relief and return to feeling comfortable again.

What can I do to enhance my cancer pain treatments?

There are a number of things you can do to enhance your cancer pain treatments. Dr. Chowdhury may recommend some or all of the following:

  • Stress management to help you reduce your stress and pain
  • Biofeedback training to help you recognize and respond to pain effectively
  • Nutrition education to help you choose foods that may reduce pain and enhance health
  • Physical reconditioning to help you stay physically active, within your own limitations
