Breakthrough Cancer Pain Media Event

Wazzup Pilipinas!
Cancer is enough to affect one’s quality of life but breakthrough cancer makes things worse for patients. In line with this, a blogger’s event was held last March 8, 2017 at EDSA Shangri-la Hotel. Among the important key points from the event were the following:

There are two types of cancer pain—background pain and breakthrough cancer pain. According to Professor Michael Uberall, Breakthrough cancer pain (BTcP) is a transient exacerbation of pain that occurs either spontaneously, or in relation to a specific predictable or unpredictable trigger, despite relatively stable and adequately controlled background pain. BTcP is characterized by a sudden onset of pain that reaches peak intensity within as little as 3 minutes and lasts for an average of 30 minutes. Patients with cancer will experience an average of 4 episodes of Breakthrough Cancer Pain in a day.

Breakthrough cancer pain is a common problem among cancer patients and is also known to have a severe detrimental impact on quality of life (QoL), including daily functioning, social relationships and enjoyment of life. There is absolute need for effective treatments for relief of BTcP as current treatments do not adequately address this concern. 

Now, cancer patients who suffer from Breakthrough Cancer Pain do not have to miss those special moments in their lives. If you or any of your loved ones are suffering from Breakthrough Cancer Pain, please seek consult with either your pain/palliative care specialist or medical oncologist.

  1. I don't like to remember the times when I was sick, but nevertheless I have to mention the remedies that helped me to reduce the pain. I am not advocating that you use magic mushrooms, here's the link , but I must say that they do have pain relieving properties. Be sure to consult with your doctor about this product and if he/she approves, use it.
