The Cancer Pain Book

Managing and relieving cancer pain: a practical and educational guide

More than half of those with cancer will experience pain. People living through a cancer diagnosis and experiencing changes to physical health, relationships, and emotional and psychological wellbeing can find it difficult to face pain or the prospect of relieving it with any confidence or hope. However, there is hope.

Getting control of pain is a collaboration, and clinicians can help. But there are also many things people in pain can do to help themselves. Much of pain research focuses on new approaches that offer effective additions or alternatives to drugs and invasive procedures. These approaches allow those experiencing pain to take back some control. Rather than feeling helpless, they can actively relieve their pain.

The Cancer Pain Book guides the reader in understanding their pain experience – the what, how and why of cancer pain – and the mind–body connection, with a focus on pain management through proven psychosocial interventions including exercise, relaxation, meditation and psychological tools. This can build mental resilience, self-compassion and positive thinking. 

The Cancer Pain Book is the third title in HammondCare's 'Pain Series', following the highly acclaimed The Pain Book (2013) and The Spinal Cord Injury Pain Book (2014).
