Medication to alleviate bone cancer pain.

  • Team Onco

    Are there any medicines that can be taken to alleviate bone cancer pain?

  • Hi Riddhi,
    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.
