Cancer pain does not just happen during treatment. There are residual aftereffects of cancer and cancer treatment that can cause pain. Conditions such as neuropathy caused by nerve damage, pain from surgery and scars can cause a person pain months and even years after treatment. LIVESTRONG partnered with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) to create a series of videos called Moving Forward to manage post-treatment affects of cancer. Below are interviews from survivors and health care professionals on how to deal with cancer pain during and after treatment.
