520    "Cancer remains a major challenge for medicine and it 
       continues to claim lives and cause great suffering. Pain 
       is a symptom experienced by most cancer patients 
       regardless of disease stage, and less than 50% of cancer 
       pain patients achieve effective pain and symptom control 
       though available therapies. If these therapies are 
       utilized correctly, many more patients can achieve 
       effective control. While opioids are still seen as the 
       mainstay of cancer pain treatment, it is necessary to 
       examine whether this treatment strategy still holds true 
       in the 21st century. Cancer Pain provides a comprehensive,
       up-to-date, practical guide to the management of pain in 
       cancer patients. The book provides a clear, concise 
       explanation of cancer pain syndromes, a modern 
       understanding of the pathophysiological mechanism and an 
       overview of recent developments in creating pre-clinical 
       cancer pain models. It offers the reader the wide and 
       improved options for management of cancer pain in clinical
       practice, including the use of opioid and non-opioid drugs,
       and defines the role of non-pharmacological methods for 
       pain control. Cancer Pain also provides an overview of the
       latest developments in the management of cancer, which 
       have major implications for the current and future 
       thinking in cancer pain treatment strategy. This text is 
       an invaluable resource for doctors, trainees and clinical 
       nurse specialists in palliative medicine and oncology, and
       would be of interest to anyone who wishes to gain a better
       understanding of the complex nature of cancer pain and the
       tools available to alleviate it."
