Some foreign reports state that 60~80 % of patients hospitalized with cancer suffer with pain. The cancer patients usua1ly have exacerbation of pain corresponding to the progre-ssion of the disease. The management of cancer relate? pain includes the followings : 1) Attacking the pathologr causin? the pain 2) Raising the pain thresheld 3) Modulating the pain pathway 4) Interrupting the pain pathwazy. The most important aspect in management of cancer related pain is stepladder approach to ana17esic tailoring. The development of toleranoe with prolonged uke of analgesics requires increasing dose of analgesics.
