Pain from chemotherapy

Chemotherapy for cancer can cause pain, and some types are more likely to cause pain than others.

If you are undergoing chemotherapy and you experience new or different pain, it's very important for you to describe these changes in your pain to your doctors and nurses. Sometimes chemotherapy can be adjusted. In other cases, the most effective strategy is to treat the pain directly.

Chemotherapy can also cause nerve damage, leading to nerve pain in any part of the body, but most often in the hands and feet.
