About pain caused by cancer

Why does cancer hurt? Although a tumor itself doesn't hurt, the growth of a tumor may cause pain in a number of ways, which are related to the type of cancer you have and the different places the cancer affects your body.

Cancer may press on any tissues that are close by. It may block blood vessels and reduce circulation. Tumors may invade other parts of the body. Any of these effects can create pain.

Pain directly caused by the cancer accounts for most of the pain experienced by people with cancer.
