Pain in patients with cancer may arise due to the primary disease, or due to therapy of the malignant disease. Pain may be caused by oral infection, oral mucositis, and by alteration in musculoskeletal and neurological function. The management of orofacial and oropharyngeal pain in patients with cancer is reviewed in this paper.
