Surgery is sometimes used to relieve
cancer pain. Removing a tumor that is pressing on
nerves, bones, or your spinal cord can help your pain. Surgery can also remove
tumors that block the intestine and cause pain. The type of surgery that you
may have depends on the type of cancer you have, which parts of your body are
affected, and what treatments you have had before.
