Why Do I Need to Know This?
Chronic cancer pain persists for one month or more beyond the usual course of an acute illness or injury. It is associated with a pattern of recurrence intervals over months or years. It is important for medical professionals to be able to identify common tumor-related cancer pain syndromes to ensure better patient care, particularly with regard to serious complications that may occur.
