Troublesome symptoms in cancer survivors: Fatigue, insomnia, neuropathy, and pain

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Patients with cancer suffer from a variety of symptoms associated with both cancer and its treatment. These symptoms may lead to a decreased quality of life for patients and can affect compliance with cancer therapies. The importance of adequately treating cancer-related symptoms is gaining more attention but, overall, many symptoms remain underdiagnosed and undertreated. Fatigue, insomnia, neuropathy, and pain are among the most common troublesome symptoms experienced by cancer survivors. This article will focus on the management of these symptoms, including an assessment of the current research and proposed best-management practices. © 2012 by American Society of Clinical Oncology.
