What is Breakthrough Cancer Pain
Breakthrough cancer pain (BTcP) is defined as a transient exacerbation of pain that occurs either spontaneously, or in relation to a specific predictable or unpredictable trigger, despite relatively stable and adequately controlled background pain.
Breakthrough cancer pain occurs in the majority of patients who are already receiving chronic, long-acting opioid pain management and yet have episodes of severe tumor- and treatment-related cancer pain.
