Summary "Cancer-related bone pain is experienced by patients with primary bone tumours (e.g. myeloma and osteosarcoma), but is more commonly seen in patients with malignant tumours that have metasised to bone. Bone pain is one of the most common and severe forms of pain associated with breast, prostate and lung cancer, yet little is known about the underlying mechanisms responsible. Cancer patients identity bone pain as the most disruptive cancer-related event in terms of their quality of life and daily functioning, and it is also associated with increased incidence of morbidity, depression, and anxiety." "This pocketbook will summarize the latest evidence-based and practical information on the management of cancer-related bone pain. It is an invaluable reference for all health care professionals involved in the management of patients with bone pain from various disciplines, including palliative care, anaesthetics, oncology and general practice."--BOOK JACKET
