Cancer pain can be stressful. It takes a toll on both your physical and mental health. It’s important to remember that you don’t have to deal with the pain on your own. You can work with your doctor to create a pain management plan. Additionally, counseling may help you deal with the mental toll that chronic pain causes. Look to your support system, and remember that whether you’re dealing with chronic or acute pain, there are treatment options available.
