How to Control Cancer Pain

Visit your doctor. Let your doctor know of any pain that you are currently experiencing. They may be able to prescribe a medication or recommend a pain killer. Furthermore, they will inform you about any medications that might interfere with your current treatment. Use an over-the-counter painkiller to manage mild pain. You can easily buy over-the-counter medicines to manage your daily pain. These OTC medications include Acetaminophen (Tylenol) as well as NSAIDs, a popular class of anti-inflammatory drugs that help block the pain receptors in your brain from receiving pain signals.
