Pain in children and teens who have cancer is very common. Pain that isn’t well treated can slow recovery and healing, affect sleep, and contribute to feelings of fear and distress. Pain can come from many sources including the cancer itself, necessary medical procedures, and cancer treatments. Medical procedure pain may include blood draws, port accesses, lumbar punctures, or bone marrow aspirations. Pain from cancer-related treatments may include pain after surgery, pain from the inflammation of the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, and pain related to limb amputations. Pain can also be side-effect of chemotherapy, radiation, and other cancer treatments.
