Before treating the cancer pain, severity needs to be assessed.
- For mild pain, painkiller keeps the pain well under control
- In severe cases, an opioid group of drugs and Radiation are recommended.
- Bisphosphonate group of drugs are also used to alleviate symptoms of bone metastases.
Hope this helps! Take care.
