London Regional Cancer Program

Symptom Management

LRCP’s symptom management team is a multi-disciplinary group of physicians, social workers, therapists, spiritual care specialists, nurses, radiation therapists and dietitians dedicated to helping patients with problems related to cancer or its treatment.

It is important for patients to let their care team know they are experiencing pain, or any other symptoms. In more than 90% of patients cancer pain can be successfully treated by simple means.

Under-treatment of cancer pain can actually interfere with a patient's overall response to cancer treatment, so pain management is critical to their care plan.
