Pain relief clinic

The cancer pain clinic aims to help patients with chronic pain problems.

Pain in cancer can result from the disease itself causing compression, inflammation or infiltration of local nerves, as well as from treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Certain conditions are associated with specific cancer pain syndromes such as post treatment pain, post breast surgery pain syndrome, neuropathic pain and similar conditions.

We treat:

  • patients with cancer related pain

  • persistent pain after surgery

  • neuropathic pain

  • intractable pain

  • back pain

  • peripheral neuropathy

  • pain associated with lung cancer

  • chronic pain in patients with respiratory or cardiovascular disease.

Treatment plans

Treatment plans are individualized according to each patients' specific needs.

We specialize in assessing pain thoroughly, and then focusing on the treatment and monitoring of pain.

Medication: A number of different drugs are used including opioids, anti neuropathic drugs and anti inflammatory drugs.

Physical therapy: specific exercises are recommended, we have links with the physiotherapy department who can advise on this aspect of treatment.

Psychological therapy: very often psychological factors such as stress, anxiety and depression are associated with chronic pain. These factors will be assessed and treated as appropriate.

During the consultation

We take a detailed history of the pain problem and associated medical conditions. We then offer an opinion as to the cause of the pain and recommend a treatment plan. This plan is followed up as appropriate.

We link with oncologist, surgeons and general practitioners to provide an integrated and coordinated approach to pain management. We also link with physiotherapists, psychologists and other specialists to help control unrelieved pain.
