Summary

Hematologic malignancies make up about 9% of the new cancer cases in the USA in 2013. Of the new hematologic cancer cases, approximately 53% were lymphoma, 32% were leukemia, and 15% were myeloma.[1] The management of pain in hematologic cancers presents a constellation of problems that are distinctly different from those associated with solid tumors. We will review four cases of patients who presented with pain associated with hematologic cancer that illustrate the unique complexity and breadth of the problems to be addressed. We will then discuss considerations that should be taken that affect the assessment of risks and the selection of analgesic treatment, and the monitoring of clinical response.
