Offering Effective Relief of Lung Cancer Pain

The most common side effect of lung cancer is pain. Effective relief of cancer pain is an integral part of comprehensive cancer care. Cancer causes pain in 30% of patients with early diagnosis and in 85% of those whose cancer is advanced.

Fox Chase Cancer Center specialists provide comfort for patients with lung cancer pain, including palliative airway procedures. Fox Chase has a comprehensive Pain Management Program, headed by nationally-recognized cancer pain relief and palliative care expert Michael Levy, MD, PhD.
