Lung Cancer - Home Treatment
Not all forms of cancer or cancer treatment cause pain. If
pain occurs, many treatments are available to relieve it. If your doctor has
given you instructions or medicines to treat pain, be sure to follow them. You
home treatment for pain to improve your physical and mental well-being. Be
sure to discuss with your doctor any home treatment you use for pain.
If your disease is at an advanced stage, you may choose not to have
treatment because the time, costs, and side effects of treatment may be greater
than the benefits. Making the decision about when to stop medical treatment
aimed at prolonging life and shift the focus to end-of-life care can be
difficult. For more information, see the topics:
