Managing Chronic Cancer Pain with Tailored Treatments

Doctor Diagnosis

Chronic pain is among the most distressing symptoms experienced by cancer patients. Between 30% and 90% of patients report discomfort during their illness, with later-stage cancers being more frequently linked to pain-related syndromes than earlier stages.

Undertreatment of cancer pain can cause severe disruptions to the quality of life, like trouble sleeping, depression, appetite loss, inability to perform daily activities and more. Therefore, it is imperative to address the pain associated with cancer.

What Are the Effects of Chronic Cancer Pain?

Pain of any kind can have far-reaching consequences. For example, chronic pain may prevent you from performing at your best at work or in other everyday situations. It may also affect your ability to eat and sleep.

Being in pain could cause you to snap at the people you care about the most. Feelings of frustration, sadness and even anger are common responses to physical discomfort. In addition, some people in your life may not be able to relate to how you feel, leaving you feeling isolated.

To receive assistance, you must communicate your experience of pain to a seasoned pain specialist.

What is Chronic Cancer Pain?

Chronic cancer pain is a common side effect of cancer and cancer treatments. It could get better or worse, depending on the day.

Cancer-related pain can be confined to the affected area or spread throughout the body due to nerve response and inflammation. However, chronic pain is highly individual, with each patient’s unique pain points and symptoms, so individualized care is necessary.

Can Chronic Cancer Pain Be Relieved?

No one with cancer should have to accept pain as a way of life. All pain is treatable. Pain from cancer can be challenging to manage, but the experienced physicians at Medici Spine & Pain can help you by developing a tailored treatment plan. There are many options, including both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical methods.

For example, some patients may require narcotics for severe pain. In these cases, we can also provide treatments that help reduce the use of these substances. Other treatments do not involve medications, like psychotherapy, physiotherapy and injections.

To Dr. Sonny and all the staff at Marietta: What a wonderful appointment I had at Medici for epidural injections! I can't say enough about Jana and Sarah and the gentleman in the back and front office personnel also. They were so caring and friendly; it was quite entertaining while waiting for my turn! They have such a pleasant camaraderie together and engage the patients in conversation too. They bring a very comfortable atmosphere to all. It sure helped pass the time and alleviate any anxiety one might have. The best part is I walked out with NO PAIN. However, later I realized that was mostly due to the local anesthesia... Ha, ha on me! I know it is a temporary fix, but I will enjoy it as long as it is effective. I thank all who I've been in touch with during this journey. You're all awesome at all locations!! P.S. Jana and Sarah: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME ON AND OFF THOSE NARROW TORTUOUS BEDS!!!! It was my biggest fear!!! Blessings to all...."I'll be back!!"

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!
