Appropriate and timely oncological management of the primary tumour and secondaries can result in a significant improvement of pain. The treatment given is often palliative aimed at rapid symptom relief and needs to be combined with pharmacological and non-pharmacological measures of pain control. Cancer treatment can either be systemic in the form of chemotherapy, hormones, and targeted agents or locoregional in the form of radiotherapy and surgery.
