A Hospital Based Survey on Lung Cancer Related-pain in Northern China

2017-06-19 02:51:52 | BioPortfolio


This cross-sectional study, utilizing two sets of questionaire designed for patients and physicians respectively, aims at the epidemiology, the clinical features, and the current status of evaluation and management of lung cancer related pain in 20 participating hospitals in Northern China.


Lung malignancies have become the most common cause of mortality among patients with cancer in China. A significant proportion of lung cancer patients suffer from cancer related pain, however few studies have reported the prevalence and clinical features of such pain, especially in China.

This study is a cross-sectional survey in 20 hospitals in Northern China. We designed two separate series of questions to be answered by patients and cancer management professionals. In the patient questionaire, we collect information on the prevalence, location, intensity, impact on life of lung cancer related pain. Questions on how doctors evaluate and manage the pain are included in both the patients' and physicians' surveys. In the doctors' questionaire, we also assess current situation of cancer pain educational programs attended in medical schools and post graduation through related questions.

Pain that may be caused by or related to cellular, tissue, and systemic changes that occur during NEOPLASM growth, tissue invasion, and METASTASIS.

A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.

Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

Dull or sharp aching pain caused by stimulated NOCICEPTORS due to tissue injury, inflammation or diseases. It can be divided into somatic or tissue pain and VISCERAL PAIN.
