Bone pain is a significant clinical problem for patients, their carers and health care professionals. Thus, bone pain can have a significant impact on physical, psychological and social functioning (and so overall quality of life) (Rustoen et al., 2005). Furthermore, bone pain can be difficult to manage, and treatment may require the use of multiple types of intervention (Clare et al., 2005). This chapter will discuss the epidemiology, clinical features and relevance of bone pain in patients with cancer.
