Abstract

The world health organization reports that cancer is not only a problem in developed countries but also in low and middle income countries. It kills more than 7.5 million people in a year and there are 13 million new cases of cancer every year. Among the cancer patients 30- 50 percent are under active therapy, 70–90 percent patients at far advanced disease suffer significant pain which if not treated leads to anxiety and depression which may lead to suicide. Management of cancer pain is the duty and the ethical responsibility of health care personnel.
