This book focuses on the features of pelvic pain in the different cancer diseases, the pain assessment tools, as well as the pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches. Pelvic cancer pain is a common and debilitating symptom, and pain control is a one among the main therapeutic goals throughout the duration of the disease. Because pelvic cancer pain due to primitive cancer, recurrence or metastasis is a complex clinical pathology, no single technique is often guaranteed to produce a complete pain relief. Thus, there are many treatment options, but in most cases a correct approach to pain control should be provided by a multidisciplinary team under the responsibility of a pain specialist coordinating several professionals. This book will aid several figures of practitioners, like anesthesiologists, oncologists or surgeons, in making the correct decisions in individual patients affected by cancer pain due to pelvic diseases.

Now divided into four parts, the second edition of Cancer Pain delivers broad coverage of the issues that arise in the management of malignancy-related pain, from basic science, through end of life care and associated ethical issues, to therapies, both medical and complementary. Part One reviews basis considerations in cancer pain management, including epidemiology, pharmacology, history-taking and patient evaluation and teamworking. Part Two brings together the drug therapies for cancer pain, their underlying basis, and potential side-effects. Part Three covers the non-drug therapies, including nerve blocks, stimulation-induced analgesia, radiotherapy, complementary therapies and psychological interventions. The control of symptoms other than pain, so critical to cancer patients, is also considered here. Part Four describes special situations. Cancer pain management in children and older patients, and in the community setting, and pain in the dying patient and the cancer survivor are all covered here.
