Radiotherapy causes skin redness and irritation. Remember that some pain may have nothing to do with your cancer. You may have the general aches and pains that everyone gets from time to time. Among patients with cancer, pain is one of the most feared symptoms. Pain may occur in greater than 50 % of patients with cancer.
Pain may lead to impaired function, psychological distress, and interruption in daily activities. Pain can occur as a result of cancer itself or from the cancer treatments such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Strategies for treating cancer pain include medical management, psychological support, palliative care, and procedures.
Acute cancer pain
Acute pain is due to damage caused by an injury and tends to only last a short time. For example, having an operation can cause acute pain. The pain goes when the wound heals. In the meantime, painkillers will usually keep it under control.
Chronic cancer pain
Chronic pain is due to changes to the nerves. Nerve changes may be due to cancer pressing on nerves or due to chemicals produced by a tumor. It can also be caused by nerve changes due to cancer treatment.
Chronic pain continues long after the injury or treatment is over and can range from mild to severe. It can be there all the time. Sometimes pain can come on quickly, for example when you have a dressing changed or move around. This type of pain is called incident pain. Chronic pain is also called persistent pain. Chronic pain can be difficult to treat, but painkillers or other pain control methods can successfully control it in about 95 out of every 100 people.

The majority of cancer pain is caused by the tumor pushing on bones, nerves, or other organs in the body.
Pain might be caused by your cancer treatment. Some chemotherapy medications, for example, might induce numbness and tingling in your hands and feet. Alternatively, they may create a burning sensation at the site of the medication injection.
The amount of pain you have with cancer depends on
- The type of cancer you have
- Where it is
- The stage of your cancer
- Whether cancer or treatment has damaged any nerves
- Other factors such as fear, anxiety, depression, and a lack of sleep can also affect how you feel pain.

Pain From the Tumor
Cancer can grow locally to invade structures such as bones, nerves, tissue, and organs. Cancer can also metastasize and invade structures remote from actual cancer. The pain may vary depending on the structure involved.
Pain From Treatment
Cancer treatment includes chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. While these treatments are potentially life-saving, each has its unique set of side effects. For example, chemotherapy can cause muscle pain and neuropathy (damage to the very small nerve fibers.
Following surgery, pain occurs as a result of tissue injury and subsequent inflammation. In most circumstances, this pain improves as the tissue heals. But few cases it persists beyond the expected duration of recovery and becomes chronic pain.
