Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with, or resembling that associated with, actual or potential tissue damage. Pain can be acute or chronic. Syndromes include neuropathic pain, chronic pain syndromes, arthralgias, skeletal pain, and gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and pelvic pain. Pain occurs in 59% of patients undergoing treatment and almost 100% of those with advanced disease.
