[Treatment of pain in advanced tumors in the area of the head and neck].

Abstract

Different mechanisms of pain development and strategies of pain treatment are briefly described as an introduction. Since medicaments are preferentially used for the treatment of cancer pain, pharmacology of analgesics and principles of analgetic therapy are pointed out in more detail. Based on own experiences, a stepwise schedule for the treatment of pain in patients with advanced head and neck cancer is presented.
