This chapter discusses some of the pain syndromes in cancer and non-cancer palliative care. It also provides suggestions for suitable nerve blocks, where applicable, and discusses cancer-related pain syndromes, chronic pain syndromes, and pain syndromes in non-malignant disease. The chapter shows that recognizing the patterns of pain that occur in patients in the palliative phase of their disease can help the clinician diagnose the most likely cause of pain.
