Cancer Pain

Cancer pain is a common condition experienced by individuals living with cancer. The pain can be caused by the cancer itself or by the treatment of cancer. Cancer pain can range from mild to severe, and it can affect a patient’s physical, emotional, and social well-being. At Texas Spine & Pain, we understand the debilitating effects of cancer pain and offer personalized treatment plans to help our patients manage their pain and improve their quality of life.

Causes

Cancer pain can be caused by a variety of factors, such as the cancerous tumor pressing on nerves, bones, or organs. Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery can also cause pain. Additionally, cancer pain can be caused by inflammation, infection, or other conditions associated with cancer.

Common Issues

The symptoms of cancer pain can vary depending on the location and stage of cancer. Common issues experienced by cancer patients include aching, burning, shooting, or stabbing pain. Patients may also experience fatigue, anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbances. These issues can have a significant impact on a patient’s overall quality of life.

Treatment Options

At Texas Spine & Pain, we offer a variety of treatment options for cancer pain. Our team of specialists works closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses their unique needs. Treatment options may include medication management, nerve blocks, physical therapy, and counseling.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

Non-surgical treatment options for cancer pain include medications such as opioids, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and antidepressants. Additionally, nerve blocks can be used to temporarily or permanently block pain signals to the brain.

Surgical Treatment Options

Surgical treatment options for cancer pain may include procedures such as spinal cord stimulation, radiofrequency ablation, or nerve decompression surgery. These procedures can help relieve pain and improve overall quality of life for patients.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

At Texas Spine & Pain, we recognize that recovery and rehabilitation are important components of pain management for cancer patients. Our team works closely with each patient to develop a comprehensive rehabilitation plan that may include physical therapy, counseling, and support groups.

Dr. Iqbal is the best pain management doctor I have ever had and will have. She does her homework first which I think makes the difference in diagnosis. She is the total package, a very smart and beautiful doctor, wife, and mother. Hand on Bible she changed my life, and I will forever be in debt to her. I can't say thank you enough. I appreciate her staff; they are all awesome as well. I laughed and cried in her office, but her smile and staff always made me feel welcome like part of their family. I would and will drive across country to see her. The referral to a new knee surgeon to fix a bad knee replacement was the best. I got a new knee, and it has been a huge blessing as well. Thank you, Dr. Iqbal and staff you all are 5 stars, in my life.

I visited this facility in January for severe back pain I was experiencing. The whole ordeal from beginning to end was amazing. I wish I had known about this place years ago before suffering from so much pain. Dr. Mehreen Iqbal, her assistant Michealle Dooley and their staff is the best. I had a procedure done on 1/17/24 and I no longer suffer from back pain and I'm able to walk again. I highly recommend this facility, 10 Stars!!!

My PCP recommended Dr. Mehreen and she was wonderful through out the entire injection process. She took her time explaining everything and was patient through out the process. In my opinion, she is the best pain management doc around.
