Pain is a pervasive, major symptom of most cancer disorders and can have a major impact on a patient’s quality of life. Conventionally, pain is treated with analgesic medications, many of which can have profound side effects. Acupuncture has been used to treat pain, including cancer pain, for millennia. There is a growing body of research supporting its efficacy in alleviating pain with minimal or no negative side effects. Thus, acupuncture can be a useful adjunct to conventional therapies in the treatment of cancer pain.
