What is cancer pain management?
Sometimes cancer itself can cause pain because it can affect nearby tissue and press on nearby nerves. The cancer can even release chemicals that can cause pain. To manage the pain, it’s important to address it but also address the cancer causing the pain. It’s possible to manage some cases of cancer pain without resorting to surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.
With the cancer pain management we provide here at Ramos Center, there are a number of options available, including a particular therapy we provide and a certain palliative treatment we offer. We can combine therapies and treatments like these into a fully comprehensive cancer pain management plan.
What is involved in cancer pain management?
Ramos Center is a pain management clinic that can address pain from a number of sources, including cancer. For general pain and even some cases of cancer pain, treatments like nerve blocks, physical therapy, hypnosis therapy, and other treatments can help a lot, but cancer pain often requires a different approach. In some cases, prescription pain medications can help, including some opioids, steroids, anti-seizure drugs, or antidepressants. Here at Ramos Center, we offer two treatments specifically for managing some cases of cancer pain. Both of them can be performed before, during, or after treatments like chemotherapy or radiation.
The cancer pain management treatments we provide are the cancer pain pump and spinal tumor ablation. With a cancer pain pump, targeted drug therapy is done using the ITB therapy (intrathecal baclofen therapy) pump system. This distributes medication directly into the area of a patient’s spinal cord that is affected by cancer. With spinal tumor ablation, targeted radiofrequency ablation (t-RFA) is done for the palliative treatment of metastatic spinal tumors.
