Up to sixty percent of cancer patients experience pain during their cancer. Pain may result from tumor progression, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, bone metastasis, or from spread along or near nervous tissue.
For many patients, the pain is a constant reminder that they have cancer. The pain can lead to sleep deprivation, depression, fatigue, stripping patients of needed energy to fight their disease.

With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Tzou has a wealth of experience in helping patients control their pain at all stages of their cancer.
