Managing Cancer Pain from Bone Metastasis

Bone Metastasis Pain Management: 3 Things to Remember

As you work with your doctor to manage your pain, keep these points in mind:

  1. It is better to prevent pain than treat it once it starts. So take pain medications on schedule.
  2. There are many ways to relieve the pain of bone metastasis. However, they may not always work right away or stop all the pain.
  3. Controlling pain can help overall treatment be more effective.
