AbstractInterventional techniques were the mainstay for cancer pain management before the WHO ladder and opioids were freely available. The three-step WHO ladder has its limitations, and cancer pain is often under treated. Advances in treatment options mean that cancer patients are living longer and pain interventions may have a role to play even early in the cancer diagnosis for better quality of analgesia. The role of high doses of opioids in pain management is also currently under scrutiny.
