Sometimes secondary breast cancer can cause you pain, but this can be treated. Throughout your care, your treatment team will ask whether you’re in any pain, where it is, how bad it is, and the impact it’s having on your life. If you’re in pain, let your treatment team know, so they can provide pain relief for you.

Treatments to control your pain
