Abstract

NEUROLOGICAL REVIEW Kathleen M.

Progress in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, coupled with advances in our understanding of the anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and psychology of pain perception, has led to improved care of the patient with pain of malignant origin. Currently, specialized methods of cancer diagnosis and treatment provide the most direct approach to treating cancer pain by treating the cause of the pain.
